Appointments to RCMP Contract Management Committee

UBCM is currently looking to appoint local government representatives from RCMP policed areas to the British Columbia Local Government Contract Management Committee (LGCMC).  A total of nine local government representatives are required for the Committee. Nominations are due by January 23, 2015.

The majority of Committee representatives must be elected officials, however local government staff nominations are also welcome.  

The LGCMC requires that the Committee consist of representatives from local governments policed by RCMP. Representatives will be drawn from communities as follows:

  • Five representatives from communities with a population over 15,000.
  • Three from the Lower Mainland RCMP District – two of the three from Metro Vancouver, and;
  • two from other parts of BC.
  • Length of Appointments: Three 3-year terms and two 2-year terms
  • Two representatives from communities with a population between 5,000 and 15,000.
  • Length of Appointments: One 3-year term and one 2-year term
  • One representative from communities with a population under 5,000.
  • Length of Appointment: 2 years
  • One representative from a Regional District.
  • Length of Appointment: 2 years

The purpose of the LGCMC is to provide a forum for consultation, analysis and communication between local governments and the Province regarding the management of the Municipal Police Unit Agreements (MPUAs).  The Committee analyzes and responds to changes proposed by the federal government and the RCMP, and recommends changes where considered necessary or appropriate.

The LGCMC appointment term will be for either two or three years and will coincide with the terms of elected office.  The Committee will hold at least two in-person meetings per year.  Reasonable meeting attendance expenses will be bourn by UBCM. 

If you are interested in participating in the LGCMC, please contact UBCM Senior Policy Analyst, Ken Vance by January 23, 2015. The UBCM Executive will look to make the LGCMC appointments at its upcoming meeting on February 13, 2015.
