Building Badminton BC's New and Improved Governance Structure
Badminton BC has been silent for the past few months as we attempt to build the organization. The Board and staff have been working hard in response to overwhelming concerns expressed by the membership with regards to the operation and governance of Badminton BC. We are now at the stage where we will be sharing our early work and communicating regularly. We will also be updating the membership as we progress and looking for volunteers to help with the continued work that lies ahead.

A volunteer Board of Directors governs Badminton BC. They meet at least two times per year, including the Annual General Meeting. The Board of Directors performs the financial management, planning and decision-making for the Association through thier managment of the various standing committees.

Badminton BC currently employs two full-time staff and three part-time contractors to manage the day to day operations and programming of the Society.
Badminton BC staff are supported by various operational committees.
The difference between Board and Operational is in the duties that the volunteer will be tasked with carrying out, thus the rationale for recruitment and nomination should also differ. For example an individual who has a great deal of experience as a badminton player, coach, official, or volunteer will potentially make them a great candidate for a spot on one or more operational committees but may not provide them with the skills necessary to contribute to the review of the societies finances or governance.
Badminton BC was formed in February 1925 and ultimately organized the play of badminton in the province of British Columbia. Since then, the association has actively worked towards providing leadership and direction for the sport, continuity in the programs and services for its members, and competitive and development opportunities for players, coaches, officials and volunteers throughout the province. Badminton BC is a registered non-profit society incorporated under the Societies Act of British Columbia. As the provincial sport governing body, Badminton BC is managed by an elected volunteer Board of Directors.
