Becoming A Member
The College is looking for individuals who are interested in becoming public and registrant representatives on various statutory committees. Being part of a committee provides a great opportunity to learn about and participate in the health regulatory landscape in BC. More importantly, the work of committee members has a direct impact on public safety in British Columbia.
As a public representative, public members provide a voice and perspective for the public, supporting the College’s mandate to serve and protect the interests of British Columbians. They work alongside other public representatives and chiropractors to help shape policies, standards and guidelines for the chiropractic profession. Public representatives are an important and equal partner in the committee work.
Registrant committee members play an important role by ensuring profession specific expertise is considered in the College’s program and policy development. Registrant members have a shared responsibility with public members in supporting the College’s mandate to regulate the profession in the public interest.
Committees are made up of both public and registrant
committee members who:
- Are volunteers. Reasonable expenses are reimbursed and honoraria are provided in accordance with College policies.
- Can commit for a term of three years.
- Depending on the committee and the nature of the work, could meet up to 5 times per year in person or be in regular correspondence via email. Attendance at the Annual General Meetings is also encouraged.
