Police Victim Services of British Columbia (PVSBC) is a provincially registered society and federally registered charity. Members include police-based victim services programs and members of the community.
Our Board of Directors is comprised of fifteen directors; with no fewer than seven directors elected from each of the police victim services regional areas, one police representative from the RCMP and one police representative from a Municipal Police department. This mix of police and community interest on the Board provides a balanced approach to working towards improvements to the services and rights of victims, witnesses and their families.
The bylaws of PVSBC stipulate that each director shall hold office for a term of two years with half of the directors retiring from office on alternate years. This provides for continuity of business for the organization and the opportunity for experienced directors to mentor those new to the board. A director can sit for no longer than three consecutive terms.
As a governance results oriented board, the PVSBC Board of Directors and PVSBC Staff work in partnership to achieve the goals and objectives of the current strategic plan.
