Testimonials from current EVA BC directors
The benefits of sitting on the EVA BC Board have been many. Working in the North often feels isolating from the rest of the province. Being part of EVA has felt like being part of a wonderful part of a provincial community. The connection and inclusivity has assisted in my growth as an executive director. The depth of learning regarding board structure, governance and operations. I feel part of a group of folks who truly make a difference.

Region 10, North Central
Serving on the EVA board is an opportunity for an enhanced understanding of governance, of EVA, and of our sector as a whole. I’m able to keep my executive director updated on EVA’s programs and campaigns while bringing her concerns and those of other agencies in our region to the board table. I highly recommend the experience!
Comox Valley Transition Society
Region 1, North Vancouver Island
Being a part of the EVA Board has been such an enriching experience. Gathering with other passionate and dynamic frontline workers and leaders in the sector has offered amazing learning I know I would never find in a workshop. Whether talking about emerging issues in the sector, governance, or looking to the future of EVA BC, all voices are valued and respected and for me, that is where the biggest learning happens. I am a stronger, more informed, frontline worker and leader in my agency because of my time on the board.

Being on EVA BC board, some of the benefits I’ve experienced are: an opportunity to bring voice from our region to the provincial table for EVA to take to further provincial tables for advocacy; the opportunity to contribute to the sector in a meaningful way; an opportunity to bring new ideas, resources, opportunities, learning, board development training, etc. back to our home agencies; leadership and board relationship support, and training that benefits our own societies; solidarity and mentorship with other women in the work; and endless opportunities for self development and resume building.
