BCN 2004/44 - Membership in the Securities Policy Advisory Committee [BCN - Lapsed]

Published Date: 2004-11-24
Rescinded Date: 2012-07-03
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 five new members to replace members who have resigned or will retire. Together with existing members, 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 generally meets on the second Wednesday of each month from 2 to 4 pm, except in July and August.

SPAC has up to 12 members. Members are appointed for staggered terms of three years, renewable for another three years, for a maximum term of six consecutive years. The committee currently includes representatives of issuers, investment and mutual fund dealers, the legal and accounting professions, the fund management business, and a venture capital organization.

The terms of existing SPAC members are staggered, with six members’ term ending on March 31, 2005, four on March 31, 2006 and one on March 31, 2007. Following this search process, we plan to recommend that the minister appoint five individuals for an initial three-year term expiring on March 31, 2008.

If you are a participant in the British Columbia securities industry and would like to become a member of SPAC, please send your resume no later than December 24, 2004 to:
