New board member for Curl BC
Curl BC is happy to announce a new addition to the Curl BC Board.
During spring meetings, members of the Thompson-Okanagan curling clubs elected a new regional board member and Lower Mainland clubs gave the green light to reinstate Dale Gregory to the Curl BC Board.
Shaun Everest from Kelowna will replace George Horner from Penticton as the regional governor for Region 3,4&7 (Thompson-Okanagan) once George’s term ends in June.
Everest was elected by representatives of member clubs in the region on April 2 and will begin his term after Curl BC’s AGM which is tentatively scheduled as an online meeting on June 13. (More details to follow in coming weeks).
Everest is a real estate agent with marketing, business administration and financial planning experience. He chaired the BC Wine Institute and has worked as a Controller and CFO for wineries in the Okanagan. In addition Everest is a board member at Kelowna Curling Club and a competitive curler at the senior level.
Everest said: “I am excited to join the Curl BC Board. As the new Governor for Regions 3, 4 & 7 my main contribution will be to increase the flow of information between Curl BC and its member clubs and curlers and give Curl BC more of a face out in the field and help shape the direction of this great sport throughout the province.”
Dale Gregory is a long-time curling volunteer from Coquitlam and a member of Port Moody Curling Club.
Gregory has been a key member of the Pacific Coast Masters Curling Association (PCMCA) and has volunteered for the 55+ BC Games among other things.
Curl BC chair Peter Muir said: “We are looking forward to welcoming Shaun to the Curl BC Board. His business experience and his passion for the game will help us to promote, develop and support curling throughout British Columbia. We also look forward to working with Dale for another two years.”
More board changes are in the works.
The Curl BC Board is inviting individuals to apply for two Governors-at-Large positions on the 10-person board – and the deadline to apply is April 24. The membership at large will elect the candidates at the Curl BC AGM.
The elected candidates will sit on the board for two years.
