On March 13th, our Museum Association held its AGM in the Theatre. Our Association President, Kevin Kinsella, as well as our Volunteer Coordinator and Programme Manager, Jon Ambler, celebrated the work done for our Museum over the past year and set course for the coming year.
We elected our Board of Directors for the 2018 – 2019 year: Kevin Kinsella (President), Steve McNamee (Vice President), Deb McKenzie (Treasurer), Val Wilson (Secretary), Allison Hetman (Membership); in addition, Jed Jednorog, Norm Danton, and Carol Popkin were elected as Directors at Large.
Long term service pins were presented to the following volunteers:
In addition to his pin, Mike also received special recognition from the BC Legislature, honouring his service over the past 25 years.
Also, Tom Lowe (15 years) and Norm Danton (5 years) were presented their pins at the Museum later in the week, as did Gary Brammer (5 years).
Congratulations to all these volunteers, as well as the myriad of volunteers who give so freely of their time so that our Museum can be the special place it is, not only for those of us who volunteer here, but also for those who visit our Museum!
Our Association also took time to recognize the leadership of Jon Ambler over the past year, a year of many challenges:
Thank you, Jon, not only for your leadership as Programme Manager, but also for your leadership and support as Volunteer Coordinator!
