Engineers and Geoscientists BC Announces Council Candidates

Posted on July 7, 2021

Engineers and Geoscientists BC is governed by a council of elected registrants and government appointees and 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 merit-based process that seeks strong and diverse leaders that reflect the organization’s registrant base.

The Nomination Committee is pleased to announce the following candidates for 2021:

Candidate Discipline City
President (Elected by acclamation)
Carol Park, P.Eng. Biomedical Vancouver
 
Candidate Discipline City
Councillor (Two to be elected)
Mark Adams, P.Eng. Mining North Vancouver
Tomer Curiel, P.Eng., FEC Mechanical Vancouver
Nathan Ozog, P.Eng., FEC Electrical Vancouver
Jens Weber, P.Eng. Software Victoria

The 2021 election will mark 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 Magazine, 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.

President and Vice President

The Nomination Committee seeks to nominate at least one more candidate than the number of vacancies per position, but must ensure each candidate meets the required criteria for the position. This year, only one candidate was determined to meet the required criteria in the president category and will therefore be elected by acclamation.

Beginning this Fall, Council will appoint one of its elected members to serve as Vice President each year. 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 Friday, September 17, 2021, and will close on Friday, October 15, 2021 at 12 PM. All registrants in good standing, including trainees, are eligible to vote.
