LIANS Board of Director vacancies - Expressions of interest

With retirements, LIANS is seeking expressions of interest to fill six (6) upcoming vacancies on its 12 member Board of Directors. Though all members are welcome to respond, with a view to having representation on the Board from all regions of the province, expressions of interest from the South Shore, Valley, Fundy and Highland regions are particularly welcomed. As well, interested parties do not have to be members of the Society though it is expected that a majority of the Board will be members.  

New for this year, as part of your expression of interest, we require the completion of a skills matrix. Though individual Board members need not have all of the skills being sought, it is expected that the Board and its committees will, as a collective, have them all.  

In addition, members are welcome, and encouraged, to forward this request for expressions of interest to anyone they believe has the skills being sought and would be interested in being a member of the Board.  

LIANS offers interested individuals the opportunity to participate in the management of a non-profit association that provides the mandatory professional liability coverage for Nova Scotia lawyers. With Board membership also comes the opportunity to sit on one of LIANS’ standing committees:

  • audit,
  • investment,
  • governance,
  • claims and
  • the legal assistance program.  

Those interested in serving on LIANS’ Board are asked to submit a cover letter, resume and the skills matrix to LIANS’ Governance Committee c/o LIANS’ Director at The deadline for submissions is April 21, 2017.
