The Steering Committee is happy to announce that it has engaged George Higgins as the Director of the BC Safety Charter. George will transition the BCSC into its own entity under the societies act over the next three years, including a new governance and financing model. The annual “BC Safety Charter Roundtable” will continue to be the signature event, but also expect to see other smaller events focused on specific issues including Accountability, Succession Planning and Recognition. Over the next few months George will be actively reaching out to Charter Signatories to solidify both the membership and the value proposition. Additionally, the BCSC will be using LinkedIn as a centralized place to post information, articles, results of forums and have conversations. The LinkedIn page is restricted to Signatories only.
George is a public affairs and client services professional with nearly two decades of experience dealing with diverse stakeholders, the media, government officials and key decision makers. George has worked closely with numerous industry associations in BC and has developed strong relationships with many industry leaders. George’s educational background includes a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and a Graduate Certificate in Public Relations Management. Other senior leadership roles that George has held include being the Caucus Coordinator for the former Mayor of Vancouver, being responsible for members and member communications for the Smart Tax Alliance and being the Coordinator of the Coalition of BC Businesses.
