Board

Vancouver Island PWA SocietyAre you HIV Positive and interested in creating a supportive community for all folks living with HIV?

The Vancouver Island Persons Living with HIV/AIDS society (VPWAS) is looking to recruit new board members.

We encourage anyone who is living with HIV to inquire about joining the VPWAS board, regardless of experience.

Help us build a strong supportive community!


A board of directors is a group of people who come together for a common cause. They are people committed to the provision of programs and services for people affected by the issue. In that work, the board has multiple responsibilities:

  • Providing vision and direction for the Society;
  • Ensuring that the membership is informed, heard and their needs are met as best is possible;
  • Ensuring that the financial matters of the Society are well-managed;
  • Ensuring that the Society has sufficient funds to operate; and
  • Ensuring that staff and volunteers are supported and supervised in order for the best programs and services to flourish

A board of directors is made up of people. As human beings we all want to contribute the best of what we have toward the people we serve. We also seek to be involved and to create environments that benefit everyone.

And we want to feel good about who we are and what we do. We want to be appreciated.

In our work, we need to keep in the front of our minds that we are all people, and we all have a stake in our efforts.

Interested in joining the board and making a difference for poz people living in Victoria and on Vancouver Island?
