BCN 2003/32 - Membership in the Securities Policy Advisory Committee [BCN - Rescinded]

Published Date: 2003-08-15
Effective Date: 2003-08-15

The Securities Policy Advisory Committee (SPAC) is seeking expressions of interest from British Columbia securities market participants who are interested in becoming members.

SPAC is looking for three new members to replace members who recently retired after serving their maximum six-year term. Together with existing members, these new members will provide a cross-section of expertise and cover the spectrum of securities market activities in British Columbia.

SPAC is a volunteer committee that provides advice to the Commission on administrative, regulatory and legislative matters affecting the securities industry in the Province. SPAC members are appointed by the Minister responsible for the administration of the Securities Act and may also provide advice to the Minister.

SPAC has up to 12 members. Members are appointed for staggered terms of three years, renewable for another three years. The committee is currently comprised of a diverse group of members from investment dealers, the legal and accounting professions, the fund management business, and a venture capital organization.

The terms of existing SPAC members are staggered, with one member’s term ending on December 31, 2003, and the terms of the other members ending on March 31, 2004 and 2005. Following this search process, we plan to recommend that the Minister appoint three individuals for a term expiring on March 31, 2006, renewable for another three years. 

If you are a participant in the British Columbia securities industry and would like to become a member of SPAC, please forward your resume no later than September 15, 2003 to:
