The following criteria is used to evaluate whether or not an individual is suitable to join:

  • Expertise in a given field that is relevant to the respective committee you are interested in applying for
  • Willing to provide thought leadership on program initiatives, work alongside high-performing individuals, and advance program through expertise, time and/or partner engagement
  • Must be a current Member of the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade and have prior engagement with the CYP program

How to apply

Advisory Committee applications are reviewed by the CYP Nominating Committee. Recommendations are submitted to the Program Executive Committee and directors of the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade who must approve all appointments. All subcommittee applications are reviewed by the Program Executive Committee.

Applications process for the 2020-21 program year will open May 2020.
