Service to a board is a great way to contribute to the province. Board members help to ensure public sector organizations are appropriately governed and fulfill their mandate to British Columbians. Working on a board can be personally rewarding through the development of new skills, networks and a deeper understanding of community needs and concerns.
The role of a public sector organization (PSO) board member is to:
- Provide strategic direction and leadership to a provincial agency, board or commission
- Develop and approve the strategies, policies and plans necessary to fulfill the organization’s mandate
- Ensure an agency, board or commission aligns with government’s strategic direction, legislation and policies
- Evaluate, hire or terminate the CEO (where applicable), review CEO performance, and build a common understanding of the organization’s culture and succession planning
