The ISC has five standing committees that are composed of Council members and usually one to three directors. The technical knowledge and experience shared among committee members enable them to prioritize annual goals and activities for the Council.
The five Council committees are:
Communications and Awareness
Finance and Fund Development
Regulation, Compliance and Enforcement
Technical and Operational Support
Research and Development
In addition, special advisory committees work on key Council projects, and play an important role in the ISC’s functions and activities by providing guidance and recommendations for their respective plans. These include:
• The Horticulture Advisory Committee, for initiatives related to invasive plant impacts in horticulture;
• The Aquatic Invasive Plant Advisory Committee, which addresses aquatic invasive plants or species;
• The Aboriginal Working Group, which aims to increase awareness and support for Aboriginal involvement in invasive species management in BC; and
• Special Task Committees—such as the Forestry Committee, Training, Economic Impacts Committee and Weeds and Roads Committee—to provide direction on the development of technical reports or recommending best practices.
Committees are open and inclusive so if you are interested in becoming a committee member, fill out the committee sign-up sheet, indicate your area of interest, and fax (250-305-1004) or email it to email@example.com.
