Join the Board

Each year, the BVCRB accepts nominations for new board members to serve a three-year term.

The BVCRB is currently seeking nominations for Board members for 2017 through 2020. If you would like to nominate someone for a position on the BVCRB, please download our Nomination Form.

Members are selected by a selection committee made up of past board members. The goal is to have the board represent the full range of value perspectives listed in the BVCRB Terms of Reference.

For more information on the new member selection process, please contact us.

Why Join The Board?
If you would like to participate and have meaningful input into local land-use decisions, consider applying to become a Bulkley Valley Community Resources Board (BVCRB) member.

What Does The Board Do?
The BVCRB was first established in 1991 to complete the Bulkley Land and Resource Management Plan (LRMP), widely regarded as one of British Columbia’s most successful land-use plans. Today, the Board continues to play an important role by advising government on resource management, monitoring resource management plans on crown lands, acting as the vehicle for public input on issues arising from the Land and Resource Management Plan, and reviewing any proposed changes to the Plan.

What Are Some Current Issues Being Considered By The Board?

Winter Recreation Access Management: Recreational amenities are a significant contributor to local lifestyles and the economy. The BVCRB is actively encouraging the completion of a Winter Recreation Access Management Plan, a key to maintaining good relations between those who use the backcountry for recreation.

Management of Resources in the Face of LNG Pipeline Expansion: How will pipeline corridors affect wildlife habitat, water quality, and other resources. 

Who Is On The Board?
The BVCRB is comprised of 12 volunteers representing the full range of value perspectives in the community. Board members typically serve 1 or more 3 year terms, and this rotation means there are several openings on the board each year.

BVCRB Nomination Form

The Resource Value Perspectives

The Bulkley Valley Community Resources Board Agreement of October 11, 1991, embodied the concept of resource value perspectives on forestland. The list of perspectives is intended to encompass the full range of community perspectives, and is intended to guide the Nominees, assisted by the Selection Committee, in the composition of the Board. Accordingly, the Board will ensure that such perspectives continue to be suitably represented on the Board. It is not the intention to have each or any value perspective represented by a single board member. Quite likely, certain value perspectives will be held principally by some board members (albeit at different levels of zeal), and not by other board members. As well, all board members will be expected have a genuine respect, if not value, for all resource perspectives.

The perspectives are contained in the following list:
