How is a Director Involved?

Directors collaborate with each other to shape BCODN and its activities for a term of two (2) years. Directors gain satisfaction from helping create a strong professional presence for OD in BC. Directors, being more intimately involved with the network, will also have many opportunities to meet, share with and learn from other OD professionals.

The contribution of each Director depends on individual interests, talents, and the agreed-to role. Each Director agrees to take on a role or area of responsibility (e.g. BCO Liaison). Roles are confirmed during a planning session in the summer and are aligned to our common goals and practices.

A Director’s level of involvement ranges depending on their role. You can expect at least 3 hours a month for scheduled Board meetings and a professional development event. Additional time is needed to communicate with board members, volunteers, and our community plus build plans and execute on those plans for your portfolio. Director’s time can easily add up to 10+ hours a month on BCODN business. Some responsibilities, like those of the Communications Chair(s), may require up to 20 hours per month.
