The Campbell River Economic Development Corporation (Rivercorp) is seeking new members for its Board of Directors.

Rivercorp CEO Vic Goodman says, “The Board is currently seeking volunteers with experience in retail, information and financial services, entrepreneurship, governance and major projects. Citizens with experience in agriculture, aquaculture and communications are also encouraged to submit applications.”

Details of the application process can be found in an advertisement in this issue of the Campbell River Mirror. Questions can be directed via email to the Campbell River Economic Development Corporation at invest@rivercorp.ca.

The requirement to replace board positions is due to the completion of commitment of service by board members. Phil Griffith has been a member of the Rivercorp board since November 2008 and has reached the end of his board term. Patrick Evans joined the board in January of 2012 and has resigned for personal reasons.

“I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Phil and Patrick for their tremendous support and personal commitment during their time on the Board. Their leadership and guidance has been a great asset.” Goodman says.

The Rivercorp Board of Directors is comprised of skills-based volunteers representing key sectors of the regional economy.
