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 or four 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.  We are particularly looking for an investor representative, a representative of a mutual fund dealer and people in the technology or bio-technology fields.

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 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, generally renewable for another term of up to three years. The committee currently includes representatives of issuers, investment dealers, mutual fund dealers and advisers, the legal and accounting professions, and a transfer agent.

The terms of existing SPAC members are staggered, with four members' terms ending on March 31, 2007 and seven members on March 31, 2008. Following this search process, we expect to appoint three or four individuals for an initial term of three years starting on April 1, 2007 and expiring on March 31, 2010.

If you are a participant in the British Columbia securities industry (particularly in one of the identified areas) and would like to become a member of SPAC, please send your resume no later than February 8, 2007 to:
