It is a pleasure to participate as a new member to the BGCCVI and to give back into the community that I so enjoy. It is important, to be involved with people that take positive action in the community and put words into action.
In the past 30 year as a financial adviser for individual and business, it has given me the opportunity to have many great experiences with people in a variety of interests.
I have served on numerous boards of non-profit organization throughout BC since 1987, which are involved at the local and provincial levels to benefit the community.
Reason for choosing to be a BGCCVI Board Member

There was a long silence and the boy asked who wins. The grandfather said softly, “The one you feed”.
