How do I participate in BC Governance?

There are multiple ways to participate in BC Governance and join in the decision-making process on campus:

How do I become a council member?

​Constituency council members are voted in by their employment group (exempt, classified or faculty). Functional council members are appointed according to the BCG Charter. Each council elects a chair, vice chair and secretary, with the chair representing the council at the assembly.

Elections and nominations take place in the spring of each year. Employees may nominate themselves or colleagues for membership to a constituency or functional council.

If you are interested in becoming a council member, consider attending an upcoming meeting to learn more about the council and speak to current council members.

When are the council meetings?

​​Anyone can attend a council meeting. Each council holds meetings at different times and locations based on their bylaws. Typically, each council will meet twice each month for one and half hours. The days, times and locations vary.​ To view the schedule for each council please go to the direct SharePoint Site through the BC Governance SharePoint Site (login required) or to the BCG Calendar (login required).
