Are you an experienced Band Administrator? Would you like to support FNPSS in strengthening First Nations capacity and operational success?
What is BAAC?
FNPSS recognizes the key role Band Administrators play in their communities and the importance of the advice and insight they can provide to our plans going forward. As such, FNPSS created the BAAC to act as our primary advisory board that guides all FNPSS work planning and projects. The committee meets 4-6 times per year (all expenses covered by FNPSS). Some support for professional development and networking activities may be available for BAAC members. *Please note: Due to COVID-19, meetings are being scheduled as virtual meetings (video conference) until further notice.
How does FNPSS determine BAAC eligibility?
- Are currently a Band Administrator (or equivalent) of a BC First Nation
- Hold a minimum of 1 years experience as a Band Administrator (or equivalent)
- Can commit to a two-year membership term (you will need formal support for this membership from your communities’ Chief and Council for the duration of the membership term)
- Can speak to and provide guidance and input on all aspects of First Nations operations
Please note that every effort is made so that members represent the widest possible geographic representation of BC First Nations communities, as well as varied First Nations community sizes. Whenever possible, First Nations individuals will be given preference. We are specifically looking for individuals to represent these regions:
- Vancouver Island & Coast
The role of the Band Administrator continues to evolve as First Nations increase their decision-making authority, driving the need for knowledge and skill that may go beyond the administration of delegated authority over programming. Help us to support this important work!
