The BC Anthropomorphic Events Association is seeking nominations for its one-year Community Representative position on the Board of Directors. This is a one-year term running from March 8, 2018 to the start date of VancouFur 2019.
The BC Anthropomorphic Events Association, a registered not-for-profit in the province of British Columbia, is the group that oversees the operation of VancouFur, principally, as well as events surrounding it in the Vancouver area. Board members are not involved directly with the operations of the convention from year to year (although Directors are welcome to volunteer as part of convention staff, remembering that they have no direct authority from their Board position); instead, they are responsible for establishing the rules, direction and financial allocation for the convention, as well as appointment of the Chair of the convention each year. Elected board members are legal representatives of the non-profit corporation legally responsible for VancouFur and other events.
At present, the Board consists of:
RainRat - Community Rep, term ends as of VancouFur
Mediar - term ends 2018
Greyson - replacement seat, term ends 2018
Carthage - On leave of absence as Chair
Tony Greyfox - term ends 2019
Pdawg - term ends 2019
Kyroo - term ends 2020
Zen - term ends 2020
Who is eligible for nomination?
Consider nominees who are motivated to assist in the growth of VancouFur and other area activities within the furry community. Convention operation experience is not necessary, but can certainly be a benefit. People who are driven to succeed, have good moral ethics, and unique perspectives are good candidates who can help the convention and the local community grow. They do not have to be current or former VancouFur staff members to be eligible.
How to submit a nomination
Please do not nominate people publicly. Instead, please direct an email with the subject line "2018 Community Rep Nomination" to email@example.com with the name of your nominee or nominees. Staff members may nominate up to three people.
Nominations must be submitted by 11:59 pm February 23, 2018.
Nominees will be contacted by members of the Board to confirm their acceptance of the nomination. Once the nominations are complete, the candidates will be asked to provide statements to the staff, and an election will be held for the position.
For more information about these elections or anything else regarding the BC Anthropomorphic Events Association, please feel free to email the Board or contact any individual member. Thank you!
