At the LPNABC AGM on April 26th, membership voted to amend the bylaws to add a new position to the Board of Directors, Indigenous Councillor. This Councillor will serve as a voice for Indigenous LPNs in B.C. and supports the desire of the LPNABC to develop strong Indigenous nursing leadership in response to Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Report.
This change was made in anticipation of the formation of a single nursing association, representing all of B.C.’s nurses under one umbrella, called Nurses and Nurse Practitioners of BC (NNPBC). Once NNPBC is formed, the Board of the LPNABC will become the LPN Council. Members of the LPN Council will be responsible for bringing forward the key issues impacting LPNs to the NNPBC Board. To learn more about the role of the LPN Council and the role of Councillors, please review the LPN Council Terms of Reference.
The Indigenous Councillor will first serve on the Board of the LPNABC, and will then become a Councillor sitting on the LPN Council.
- Candidates must be active, practising LPNs in good standing with the CLPNBC
- Candidates must identify as Indigenous (e.g. First Nations, Inuit or Métis)
- Must be available to serve a two-year term
