The Delta Foundation has more than doubled the number of directors on its board following its recent annual general meeting.
Last month, the community foundation, which serves as a “charity for charities,” announced its board of directors for 2021.
Former corporate communication director and non-profit manager Peter Roaf will serve as president, with KidSport Delta chair and Delta Sports Hall of Fame secretary Carlene Lewall serving as vice-president, ElderCollege Delta Society president Guillermo Bustos serving as secretary, and former investment firm senior manager Richard Shantz serving as treasurer.
Also serving as directors are marketing and sales professional Susan Bains-Grewal; local businessman, realtor and former Delta council member Walt Hayward; former Delta South MLA and Delta council member Vicki Huntington; human resources management consultant Marion Janssen; fundraising professional and Delta Hosptial and Community Health Foundation board member Don Livingston; Delta Law Office owner and Central City Brewers & Distillers founding partner Murray Lott; former lawyer turned mediation consultant Ulf Ottho; former financial management services consultant David Rushton; and marketing and communications professional, Dougals College instructor and Deltassist director and past president Brad Sherwin.
“This much larger board of 13 directors instead of six, with its experienced, talented leaders, will enable us, as Delta’s community foundation in regional and national networks, to build and develop in new ways so that we can do more for our charities in Delta as they serve the people of this community,” president Peter Roaf said in a press release.
