Candidates Announced for August Board Election
The five candidates running for Engineers and Geoscientists BC Board positions have been announced for the August election.

At its April 19 Board meeting, the Engineers and Geoscientists BC Board approved a bylaw amendment to allow flexibility for the election period and a longer runway to onboard new Board members ahead of the Annual General Meeting on October 16.
