Election of the Board and Executive Offices is determined in the Bylaws in Part B, bylaw 4. A Vice President is elected annually for a two-year term in which the second year he/she will serve as President. Additionally, the Board has four (4) elected members and four appointees being the Past President, a Lieutenant Governor in Council appointed public member, the Surveyor General of BC, and a member appointed to serve as Secretary. Elected members are elected for a two-year term and may run for additional terms or run for the position of Vice President. Elections are held at the Association annual general meeting currently held in March annually.

The Board generally meets three times per year in a full meeting environment and fills in other times of the year with teleconferences. Occasionally there will be further meetings/workshops for topics such as strategic planning, open forums or the occasional hearing for discipline purposes.
