Council Candidates For 2022 Announced

Posted on July 6, 2022

Engineers and Geoscientists BC is governed by a council of elected registrants and government appointees that is accountable to the public, overseeing the governance and management of the organization. The organization’s Nomination Committee is responsible for selecting candidates to stand for election to Council, following a comprehensive and rigorous merit-based process that seeks strong and diverse leaders that reflect the organization’s registrant base. 

The Nomination Committee announces the following candidates for 2022:

Candidate Discipline City
Mark Adams, P.Eng. Mining North Vancouver
Michelle Mahovlich, P.Eng., P.Geo. Civil Langford


Candidate Discipline City
Karen Ling, P.Eng. Civil Vancouver
Mahsoo Naderi, P.Eng. Civil West Vancouver
Julius Pataky, P.Eng. Electrical Vancouver
Mark Porter, P.Eng., Struc.Eng., FEC Structural Coquitlam
Jeremy Vincent, P.Geo. Geological North Vancouver

Last year’s election marked Council’s transition to a reduced size of 12 as required by the Professional Governance Act.

Selection Process

The Nomination Committee sought candidates through ongoing communication in eNews, Innovation, and online, and through direct outreach to potential candidates. Candidates were selected by the committee through a merit-based process that considered their demonstrated skills in leadership, strategy, financial literacy, risk management, human resources, regulatory understanding, governance, and technical proficiency.

Appointment of Vice President

The Nomination Committee has nominated five candidates for Councillor and two candidates for President. Council will also appoint one of its elected members to serve as Vice President. This governance best practice is well-established in similar organizations and will enable Council to select a Vice President who can best meet the needs of the Council in any given year.

Election Dates

The Council election will open by Thursday, September 1, 2022, and will close on Friday, September 30, 2022 at 12 PM. All registrants in good standing, including trainees, are eligible to vote. For more information, visit
