HBC ANNUAL CONFERENCE

New Board of Directors

Heritage BC welcomed Ranjit Gill and Janice Henry to the board of directors at the Annual General Meeting in Burnaby on October 19. Ranjit is the executive director of the Central BC Railway and Forest Museum, and a member of the Prince George Community Heritage Commission. Janice is from Kelowna where she has been the executive director of the Central Okanagan Heritage Society for several years, and has a strong background in community fund raising.

The new board reappointed President Eric Pattison of New Westminster, and Vice President Helen Cain and Secretary-Treasurer Bjorn Simonsen of Victoria. Past President Larry Foster of Kelowna resigned his board post, so this executive spot is vacant at present.

Other directors who continue with the nine-member board are Zlatan Jankovic of Vancouver, Shirley Gratton of Prince George, Don Luxton of Vancouver, and Helen Edwards, the BC Governor for the Heritage Canada Foundation, of Victoria.
