  • Must be a current Member of the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade and have prior engagement with the WLC

How to apply

Advisory Committee applications are reviewed by the WLC 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.
