The Glacier View Lodge board is welcoming three new members for the coming year.
Following its annual general meeting of July 14 — at which it reported on a successful year, including full accreditation — Glacier View Lodge is announcing several changes to the makeup of its board and executive.
Gib French, Bill Jackson and Colette Marshall have been newly elected to the board, while John King, Janet MacKenzie and Leo Richards are retiring from the board.
Bob Scales replaces Ron Webber as board chair, and Roslyn Smith is replacing Janet Mackenzie as vice-chair.
“These are natural, healthy changes for a board,” said Scales. “We have dedicated and long-serving members whose wise counsel, commitment and humour we will miss and who we wish well, but we also look forward to the contribution of our new members with their unique talents.”
The board also announced that beginning Sept. 1, Jane Murphy will be Glacier View Lodge’s new chief executive officer, replacing Michael Pontus, who is retiring. Murphy will also be the secretary-treasurer of the board.
Glacier View Lodge’s board for 2011-12 is Bob Scales (chair), Roslyn Smith (vice-chair), Jane Murphy (CEO and secretary-treasurer), Lawrence Burns, Allan Douglas, Val Dyke, Gib French, William Jackson, Dave MacSween, Colette Marshall, Greg Osborne and Ron Webber.
Glacier View Lodge is an accredited 102-bed complex care facility situated on 47 acres in east Courtenay. It was established in 1982.
