Board of Directors - Fort St. John 2020 BC Winter Games

In addition to the many volunteers who will be onsite at various venues in February 2020, a number of volunteers work for up to two years in advance of the Opening Ceremony in order to ensure the Games are a success.

A community-based Board of Directors was formed in late 2018 and is led by a President and Vice President and includes 14 Directorates, dividing the tasks into like-areas.  Liaisons from various community organizations also join the Board to provide support to the Games.

The Directors lead teams of Committee Chairs each responsible for specific aspects of planning and staging the Games.  In all there are over 100 Chairs.  Only a small contingent of staff, led by the Operations Manager, are hired by the Games to support the volunteers.  This large community endeavour is approximately 97% volunteer-led.
