Former municipal administrator Sandy Gray was appointed recently as the newest member of the Royal Roads University board of governors.

Gray has extensive leadership experience managing the complexities of local government. Recently retired as the chief administrative officer for the City of Courtenay, he previously worked in senior management positions with the Municipality of Esquimalt and the City of Nanaimo.

“I’m glad to welcome Sandy to the board of governors,” said J. Peter Meekison, board chair and chancellor of Royal Roads University. “His deep knowledge of good governance practice will be a great asset to the board.”

“Sandy’s commitment to ongoing learning aligns well with the university’s applied and professional programming mandate,” said RRU president and vice-chancellor Allan Cahoon. “His connections with local government on Vancouver Island will be a needed and valued addition to RRU’s board of governors.”

Gray has also served on the executive of the Vancouver Island and Provincial Local Government management associations (LGMA), and for a brief period worked as executive director. He was the originating foundation chair for the Municipal Administration Training Institute, and for many years taught how to conduct local government elections and wrote a guide on the subject.

In 2013, he was one of six B.C. recipients to receive the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal in recognition for outstanding leadership in Canadian local government.

He holds a bachelor of arts in political science from the University of Victoria and a senior certificate in municipal administration granted by the Province of B.C.
