New CRBA Board of Directors

On a miserable, wet, icy evening, the CRBA held it’s Annual General Meeting at the YMCA.

Congratulations to the new Board of Directors.  They will vote on the executive positions at their first Board Meeting.

  • Socrates Apallas – returning
  • Kathrin Furniss – returning
  • Sandra Iskandar – returning
  • Tom Junek – returning
  • Sarah Legacy – new
  • Trevor McLeod – new
  • Philip Stoop – new
  • Tricia Waldron – returning
  • Scott Wilson – new

We are very excited to welcome Trevor from the West Don Lands and Scott from the Distillery District to the board. We are also looking to recruit an additional Business board member – if you’re interested and represent a Corktown-based business, email info@corktown.ca

We would like to thank the Board members who will no longer be serving on the Board. They have spent countless hours making our neighbourhood a better place to live and work. But have no fear, they have all committed to continue with various CRBA responsibilities so they’re not really gone. Many thanks!

  • Scott Barker
  • Michele Cummings
  • Kara Isert
  • Larry Webb

Thanks again to the Tim Hortons at King and River for the coffee and Timbits. There were a few excited Roll up the Rim winners to boot! (Just coffee, no car!)
