The Comox Valley Airport Commission (CVAC) has appointed Comox Valley Economic Development Society nominee Richard Hardy to the CVAC Board for a three-year term.
Hardy is a current member and Councillor of the K’omoks First Nation; prior to that appointment he was the general manager of the KFN aquaculture company, Pentlatch Seafoods LP. He has been an active member of the executive with the Comox Valley Economic Development Society (CVEDS) including serving as president. Before being involved with CVEDS, Hardy was a volunteer board member for the British Columbia Shellfish Growers Association.
“Richard brings a wealth of experience in local government and economic development, in addition to his commercial experience,” said CVAC board chair Martin Crilly. “While the airport remains open to support essential travel, we are hopeful that we can soon turn our attention to setting a course to renewed growth, under the guidance of an experienced and diverse board. We welcome Richard’s willingness to join us in this effort.”
The Comox Valley Airport Commission is the governing authority for the operation of the Comox Valley Airport. The nine-member commission is broadly representative of the Comox Valley community and its members are nominated by the City of Courtenay, the Town of Comox, the Village of Cumberland, the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD), the Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce and the Comox Valley Economic Development Society (CVEDS).
CVAC is a federally incorporated, non-profit entity, established through letters patent in 1996.
