Category: About the NBCC

Can I have a list of NBCC members and their contact information in order to send press releases?

 

The NBCC does not share any information about its members. A directory of members to be completed soon will be available to members only. 

How do I get a job with the NBCC?

The NBCC is an entirely volunteer-run organization. There are no jobs with the NBCC.

How do I become a member of the NBCC board of directors?

The 24 member board of directors rotates every three years, which means each year, 8 seats on the board become available. These seats are filled annually through an election process that begins with submission of a candidacy statement outlining your goals for your time on the board, and ending with an election where the NBCC membership votes for the board members. The election takes place each year in winter, and a call for candidates will be posted on the calendar page of the NBCC’s website and in the NBCC NewsWire. All NBCC members are encouraged to run for a seat on the board of directors.
