To accept the nomination you must fill out the online nominee information form (link will be provided in the e-mail notification) by the indicated deadline. The form includes questions about your career achievements, education, volunteering, community and philanthropic work. It also asks for a minimum of two references from your work and/or volunteer experiences.
From the nominations received, JA British Columbia staff create a short list of approximately five (5) nominees who best meet the selection criteria outlined on the nomination form. The short list is sent to the selection committee which is made up of JA British Columbia leadership team and members of JA British Columbia alumni. The selection committee reviews the short list of nominations thoroughly and debates the merits of the candidates.
All nominees will be contacted by the staff of JA British Columbia to let them know the results of the selection process. For the successful nominee, an interview and briefing with the President and CEO of JA British Columbia will be set-up.
The selection committee will vote to determine whether a candidate nomination should be carried forward to the following year. If a nomination is voted forward, it is the role of the JA British Columbia staff to ensure that the nominee form is updated for the next selection cycle.
