NPA Adds New Directors & Makes Plans for 2014 Election
Posted: Jul 4, 2012
VANCOUVER - The NPA added ten new board members - including several of its 2011 candidates and campaign team - at its Annual General Meeting last Thursday in Vancouver.
"This is a great sign of confidence in the future of the NPA," said President John Moonen, who completed his term as President. "We've added a wide range of expertise, age, background and education to the team, and have broadened our geographic representation to even more neighbourhoods and communities around Vancouver."
Amongst new directors are several candidates from the 2011 civic election, including Suzanne Anton, Gabby Kalaw, Stacy Robertson and Ken Charko; the NPA's 2011 campaign chair Peter Armstrong; and fundraiser Rob McDonald. Also elected were Robert Boyko, Susan Gagnon and Rob McDowell. The Young NPA selected Eli Zbar as Chair and Tim Laidler as Vice Chair.
They will be joining the NPA's existing directors Charlene Krepiakevich, Mark Angus, Shawn Wade, Jason King, Michael Ng and John Moonen to form the 2012-13 NPA board.
Moonen also thanked retiring board members Kirk Miller, David Choi and Simon Jackson who completed their terms this year.
"Since the election I've sensed a very strong desire amongst NPA members and supporters to renew the association and prepare to fight again in 2014," said Moonen. "The NPA is Canada's longest-running and most successful civic association - and I'm confident that record will not be broken."
