  • 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 2019-20 program year will open May 2019.
