2021 Council Election Results, Vice President Appointed

Posted on November 4, 2021

Engineers and Geoscientists BC’s 2021 Council election opened on September 14, 2021, and closed at noon on October 15, 2021. This year, 15.6% of eligible voters (including professional licensees and trainees) cast ballots. The results of the election are as follows:

President (1-year term, elected by acclamation)
Carol Park, P.Eng.

Elected Councillors (3-year terms)
Mark Adams, P.Eng.
Jens Weber, P.Eng.

The online ballot was conducted using systems contracted from Simply Voting Inc., which operates under high-security, TLS 1.2, 256-bit encryption with anti-fraud controls and secure login for eligible voters. This third-party system protects the anonymity of a vote. Election results were not available to Engineers and Geoscientists BC until after the close of the election.

This election completes the transition to the new Council size requirements under the Professional Governance Act. It also marks the first year that Council will be appointing its Vice President from amongst its elected Council members, enabling Council to select a Vice President who can best meet the needs of the Council in any given year and increasing the number of Councillor positions for election. At its inaugural meeting on November 1, 2021, Council appointed Mark Adams, P.Eng., as its Vice President for 2021/2022.
