Under the Professional Governance Act (PGA), ASTTBC is governed by a 12-member Board of Directors comprised of seven ASTTBC registrants, including Applied Science Technologists (AScT), Certified Technicians (CTech) and Registered Technical Specialists, and four publicly appointed Lay Directors. Lay Directors are appointed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council in accordance with a merit-based process under section 27 of the PGA. The Board of Directors is led by a Chair elected from within it.

The Board of Directors is responsible for ensuring that ASTTBC’s mandate, regulation of applied science technology professionals in the public interest, is carried out effectively and in a way that protects the public and the environment.
