Ryan Watmough

Executive Director Golden & District Community Foundation

Last week, the Golden & District Community Foundation (GDCF) held their Annual General Meeting (AGM) on May 23rd at The Island Restaurant with Directors and the public in attendance.

The meeting included a presentation of last year’s work and details on goals for 2012. Nola Milum, Board Chairperson; Kristal Jenkinson, Treasurer; and Advisory Committee Chairs, Glen Ewan, Karen Wilson, Denise English, and Kerstin Behrens-Bolt each reviewed the activities that the volunteers have been working on in 2011 and plan to complete in 2012.

The guest speaker, Larry Sparks, Executive Director of Kootenay Rockies Innovation Council, led a thought-provoking discussion on the challenges and similarities of supporting innovation in the private and non profit sectors.

The GDCF reluctantly said goodbye to retiring Directors Glen Ewan and Denise English, and extended a warm welcome to Jamie Fitzgerald, who has just joined the Board.
