Elect the next member of our Board of Directors!

We welcome BCSEA members as well as the public to our AGM this Saturday, November 17th.  You'll have the chance to learn about BCSEA's activities, updates and take part in our dialogue on next year's goals!

Members can elect our Board of Directors!  See our candidates below:

Lisa Embree
Lisa has been a CPA-CGA since 2001 after obtaining her Bachelors in Science from Simon Fraser University in 1994.  I have 20 years of progressive senior-level business experience within diverse environments and am a highly responsible and focused team player who represents company interests with integrity and professionalism. My roles in the past ten years have been in the technology industry focusing on start ups in the health care and utility industries.  I have had a variety of roles ranging from Controller to CFO depending on the companies requirements.  I am currently a director of OneMedNet Canada. 

Paul Rasmussen
Paul has been a member of the BCSEA Victoria Chapter Steering Committee for over 5 years and has been co-chair of the Victoria Chapter for the last 2 years.  During his time on the Steering Committee, Paul has helped to initiate and has been a key participant in many of the Chapter’s endeavours.  Most recently Paul worked to put together an alliance with several other local organizations to create a questionaire about sustainable transportation that was sent to all Southern Vancouver Island candidates for the municipal elections and answered by half of them.  As a member of the BCSEA board, Paul will seek to inform and advocate for areas where BCSEA can help in the shift to sustainable energy on Vancouver Island.  Paul is also interested in building a stronger relationship between BCSEA chapters.

Paul holds a Bachelors Degree in Computer Science from the University of California at Berkeley and has worked as a professional computer programmer, mostly in the San Francisco Bay Area for nearly 40 years.

Arman Mottaghi

I studied Urban Engineering before directing my attention towards Building Engineering in my Master’s, where I studied energy models and their use cases for buildings. This experience enabled me to start Lambda Science Inc. to develop the building energy efficiency suite StepWin. I also act as a board member in Carpe Lunam Events Association to advocate for decentralization.

My passion for sustainable energy comes from the realization that not only it is the only path forward for our environmental necessities, but also the ever-increasing availability of renewable energy solutions is an equality enabler for underprivileged communities.
Green initiatives with defined values and business models are the best accelerators of sustainable energy adoption, in my opinion. In that regard, I championed HallowHacks 2018 – the inaugural BCSEA Vancouver hackathon – with an amazing group of BCSEA Vancouver chapter volunteers. During this event we facilitated startup creation and provided a complete prize package for the continuation of the ideas beyond the event. Based on this success, I am looking forward to expanding support for sustainable energy entrepreneurship through BCSEA.
