To: Tennis – British Columbia Voting Members

From: Tennis – British Columbia Nominating Committee

Subject: Nominations for the Tennis BC Board of Directors at the 2023 Annual General Meeting

The following will describe the Board’s responsibilities, director’s term, nomination process and the biographies of the three nominees the committee is recommending to the membership. Tennis BC is fortunate to be rich with talented, committed and passionate people to develop and govern the sport. The nominations committee worked hard to engage our members in the nomination process, and we were rewarded with seven expressions of interest from very qualified individuals. We thank all of those who expressed interest in the board.


The affairs of the Society shall be managed by a Board of Directors, which shall be composed of the nine Directors elected at the annual general meeting and, ex officio, the immediate Past President, if not currently a director.

At the first meeting of the Board following the enactment of these by-Laws, the members of the board shall choose from amongst themselves five officers and four directors-at-large. At each subsequent meeting of the board immediately following the annual general meeting, the members of the board shall choose from amongst themselves as many officers and directors-at-large as is necessary to maintain the numbers at the five and four, respectively.


At the general meeting approving the enactment of this By-Law, three Directors shall be elected for a term of three years.


There shall be a nominating committee consisting of those Directors whose term does not expire at the upcoming annual general meeting and the immediate Past President who shall be Chair. The nominating committee shall, 60 days prior to the annual general meeting, nominate persons to stand for election to the Board at the next annual general meeting. By notice to the Society given 45 days prior to the annual general meeting, any Voting Member may nominate candidates for the positions of Director.

A list of the nominations together with a statement of the present occupation and employment of each nominee and the offices or positions held by that nominee in tennis organizations during the preceding five years, shall accompany the notice calling the annual general meeting. The three-year terms are as a result of the normal rotation of terms for Directors as set out in Tennis BC’s by- laws.


The undersigned, representing a Full/Facility Club Member of Tennis British Columbia, hereby assign our vote to Denise Wong, President of Tennis BC or to ___________________________________, a member of an organization which maintains Full Voting membership with Tennis British Columbia, as Proxy Holder to vote on our behalf on all matters pertaining to the Annual General Meeting of Tennis BC to be held on the 30th day of September, 2023 at 11:00 a.m. by way of a virtual Zoom Webinar.
