BCN 2007/02 - Membership in the Securities Law Advisory Committee [BCN - Lapsed]

Published Date: 2007-01-09
Effective Date: 2007-01-08
Rescinded Date: 2012-05-31

The Commission is seeking expressions of interest from British Columbia securities law practitioners who are interested in becoming members of the Securities Law Advisory Committee (SLAC).

We are looking for one to three members who, together with existing members, will provide a cross-section of expertise and cover the spectrum of securities law practice in British Columbia. We are particularly looking for in-house counsel to join the committee.

SLAC is composed of ten to twelve members, consisting of the Vice-Chair of the Securities Law Subsection of the British Columbia branch of the Canadian Bar Association and nine to eleven other members.  The Commission appoints these members from among practitioners who apply. Members serve three-year terms and may apply for a second term.

The terms of existing members are staggered, with three ending on March 31, 2007, four ending on March 31, 2008 and four ending on March 31, 2009. Following this search process, we plan to appoint one to three individuals for a term of three years starting on April 1, 2007 and ending on March 31, 2010. 

SLAC generally meets on the second Wednesday of each month from 8:30 to 10:00 am. SLAC advises the Commission on rules and policy initiatives, provides important feedback on capital market trends and acts as a consultative body on emerging or important issues.

If you are a securities law practitioner, particularly in-house counsel, and would like to become a member of SLAC, please forward your resume to the attention of the Chair of the Commission no later than February 8, 2007. SLAC is an important link between the Commission and the securities bar. We look forward to the contribution new members will make to SLAC.
