Vehicle Sales Authority of British Columbia Board position available
and
Motor Dealer Customer Compensation Fund Board position available

Vehicle Sales Authority of British Columbia is governed by an eleven-member Board of Directors (VSA Board) made up of vehicle sales industry representatives, government appointees, and members of the general public. It has the responsibility to ‘manage the affairs of the VSA’ and its members are stewards of the VSA.

The Motor Dealer Customer Compensation Fund Board of Directors (MDCCF Board) operates as an independent administrative tribunal, deciding whether or not a consumer who has made a claim will be awarded compensation. The MDCCF Board is made up of a panel of five members, including industry and public individuals, and the responsibility to appoint its members falls to the VSA Board.

The Vehicle Sales Authority of BC is seeking one individual to join the VSA Board and one individual to join the MDCCF Board. Attributes required of all members on both boards include commitment, character and competency.

Specific skills and competencies being sought in the new VSA Board member include, but are not limited to, board experience; board governance expertise; risk management; government relations; information technology; accounting and finance; automotive industry expertise; and legal experience – employment, contract and consumer law, and arbitration and adjudication understanding.

Specific skills and competencies being sought in the new MDCCF Board member include, but are not limited to, experience with assessing cases involving conflicting oral or written advice; legal experience – contract law, consumer protection; and technology proficiency, as the majority of hearings are conducted remotely with evidence being distributed via web portals.
