The Board of Directors provides leadership for carrying out CTCMA’s mission, which is to serve and protect the public interest by regulating and advancing safe, ethical and quality traditional Chinese medicine practice in British Columbia. These new members, elected from among CTCMA registrants, will provide great insight and depth to the work of the College over the next three years, alongside the other three registrant and six publicly-appointed Board members.
“As we look ahead, we can see that Beverly, Rachel and Poppi will be outstanding additions to our Board. Each is committed to serving the public interest and has been an active practitioner for many years. We are excited about the expertise and viewpoints they bring as we continue to lead the College forward,” says Jonathan Ho, Registrar and CEO.
We further announce that the Honourable Adrian Dix, Minister of Health, has reappointed five public Board members for a one-year term from December 31, 2018 to December 31, 2019.
They are Edwin Liu, Joelle Berry, Jocelyn Stanton, Oleh Ilnyckyj and Peter Stevenson-Moore.
“These five Board members have already contributed a valuable body of expertise in policy and governance best practices. Their reappointments will ensure continuity in Board operations and in policy development. I welcome the opportunity to continue working with them,” added Ho.
CTCMA’s full slate of Directors for the coming year, effective January 11, is:
- Peter Stevenson-Moore, Chair

Board members come from all areas of our profession, working as a team to make sound policy and governance decisions in the public interest, steering College operations and ensuring fiscal responsibility. The Board is accountable to the public through the Ministry of Health.
