Volunteer Position – BC Provincial Commissioner

Hello Guiders,

I am asking for your help as we embark on the search for a new Provincial Commissioner for BC Council. Dawnette Humphrey’s term as our leader will end in the spring. We need to find qualified, committed and willing candidates to stand for election at BC Council.

Please think about women (yourself included) who may fill this important position. If you have someone in mind, please encourage them to apply or forward their name and we will contact them.

It is easy, just follow the links:

Our timeline is short, so don’t delay. The deadline for applications is midnight October 20, 2015.

Please send your application by e-mail to nominations@bc-girlguides.org and indicate “Application for Provincial Commissioner” in the subject line.

Thank you,
Donna Hillman
Chair, PC Nominations Committee

The Amazing Race

Travel the world monument concept

Would you like to participate in an Amazing Race competition while you explore the multicultural diversity of Southwestern BC? The race will have several legs. Your team will receive clues for your destination and challenges that you will need to complete as you make your way to the Pit stops. We will not be eliminating teams and our prizes won’t be worth thousands of dollars but the game will include destinations, road blocks, fast forwards, U-turns and other obstacles just like the real race. Your team will be traveling by boat, train, car, bus or on foot as your travel throughout Southwestern B.C. This race will have an International flavour so that you may even feel like you are no longer in Canada! Each team will be accompanied by a Guider who will be your “camera crew”. You may be staying in hotels, hostels, tents or even Girl Guide camps. Be prepared for an amazing experience!
