Current chair Paul McManus was nominated by Walt Krahn, and no other nominations were made. Current vice chair Krahn was nominated by Bob Patterson, and similarly no other nominations were made.

Silvia Dyck was nominated to be the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association provincial representative, with Heather Maahs as the alternate. Dan Coulter was nominated to be the B.C. School Trustees’ Association provincial council representative, with Patterson as alternate.

The special election meeting was followed by a regular board meeting, the last of the 2017 calendar year.
