Board Nominations

BCTC Board Nominations & Election of Board of Directors

The British Columbia Touring Council exists for the successful and sustainable touring and presenting of the performing arts in British Columbia.

BCTC practices Policy Governance model, created by John Carver.   The Policy Governance model is based on the functions rather than the structure of a governing board.  It is primarily a set of commonsense principles about governing that fit together into an entire system. The practices of the policy Governance board, which are consistent with the principles, allow it to control without meddling, focus on long-term organizational outputs, powerfully delegate to a CEO and staff, and discharge its fiduciary responsibility in a visionary, strategic manner.
