Ideal candidates to serve on the DRA board will have experience in property management, project financing, financial management and contract management
VANCOUVER – The city of Vancouver is seeking applicants with broad business backgrounds who are interested in getting more involved in city government to fill vacancies on its Downtown Redevelopment Authority (DRA) Board of Directors. Applications must be submitted on or before July 7.
The DRA is a public corporation chartered by the city. It owns the Vancouver Hilton Hotel and Convention Center and is responsible for overseeing its operations, finances and promotion. DRA is also one of the major stakeholders in the city’s Waterfront Gateway Project, a long-term redevelopment plan for the city-owned properties around the Hilton.
Ideal candidates to serve on the DRA board will have experience in property management, project financing, financial management and contract management. Additionally, experience in either the lodging or restaurant industries, or both, would be helpful. There is no city residency requirement to serve on the board. Applicants must be available for an interview with city council members on a date to be determined.
One of these vacancies is for a mid-term appointment expiring December 31, 2024; the other two positions will be full-term appointments beginning Jan. 1, 2024, and expiring December 31, 2027. One of these positions is currently held by an individual whose term is expiring but they may reapply to retain their position. Per Vancouver City Council policy, all incumbents who wish to reapply for their positions will be re-interviewed along with any qualifying applicants.
Regular DRA meetings are held approximately six times per year at 11 a.m. on the third Thursday of the relevant month. Additional special meetings are advertised and held as needed, typically once or twice per year.
