Call for Nominations to the Board of Directors 2019

VIATEC Board Nominations are now Open!

 

August 7, 2019 (VICTORIA, BC) - VIATEC is excited to announce the call for nominations for its 2019/20 Board of Directors. The 2018/19 year has been a positive and exciting one, in part to the incredible contributions made by the current Board.

VIATEC has 14 seats on its Board, and each year there are 7 seats up for election. Being on VIATEC's Board of Directors is a great way to get more involved in Greater Victoria's technology sector, get an inside look at strategic goals (including supporting the local tech industry in growing to $10 billion in revenues by 2030), and to connect with fellow community members.

Nominees should have a strong commitment to their community, want to make a positive impact and have a reliable work ethic their fellow directors, and the VIATEC staff can depend on.

If you would like to put your name forward as a candidate, please follow this link to complete the nomination form no later than September 19, 2019 at 3pm. Please ensure you meet the qualifications required before filling out the nomination form.
