Vision 2020 is in good hands
EDMONTON, AB – The Annual General Meeting on April 25, 2016 saw Northlands release its 2015 Annual Report to its shareholders. In addition to acceptance of the Annual Report, the shareholders approved an updated governance model. The Board of Directors will work with the City of Edmonton to put the new governance model into effect. The shareholders waived their right to elections to the Board of Directors which results in no composition changes to the board and ensures continuity.
At the recent Organizational Board of Directors meeting held on April 28, 2016, the following officers were elected: Geoff Oberg, Chair, Burke Perry, First Vice-Chair and Stephen Parker, Second Vice-Chair. In further continuity, the board grandfathered Christy Morin, Lynn Faulder and Peter Silverstone as appointments to the Board. Having served three terms, Laura Gadowsky resigned as Chair of Northlands Board of Directors but will stay on as a member of the board.
“I’m honoured to be appointed as Chair,” says Geoff Oberg, Chair of the Northlands Board of Directors. “This is a pivotal time in Northlands history and I look forward to working with the team to bring Vision 2020 forward and make it a reality.” “I would like to recognize the contribution of Laura Gadowsky for her commitment as Chair. Thank you for your unwavering dedication to Northlands and the community we serve,” noted Oberg.
“Northlands is honoured to work with Geoff as Chair of the Board of Directors,” said Tim Reid, President & CEO of Northlands. “In his recent role as Chair of the Futures Committee, Geoff was pivotal in bringing Vision 2020 to light. I welcome the opportunity to continue the path set forth in Vision 2020 and to continue working with Geoff and our Board of Directors.”
