Campbell River accountant Derek Lamb will continue in his role on the North Island College Board of Governors through July of 2019. Lamb serves as vice chair and heads the Finance and Audit Committee.

Two Campbell Riverites reappointed to Board of Governors of North Island College

Two local businessmen have been granted the opportunity to continue in their roles on the North Island College (NIC) Board of Governors through July of 2019.

Derek Lamb and Roy Grant were reappointed to their positions as two of the nine government-appointed community members of the board last week, and are happy to be back in their seats.

“It’s an honour to represent Campbell River on the board,” Grant says. “Post-secondary education is vital to their community and in my role on the NIC board I’ve had many opportunities to see Campbell River students’ accomplishments in class, as well as in their careers.”

Grant is a former president of the Campbell River Chamber of Commerce and three-time city councillor, who now works at Re/Max Check Realty, where he focuses on investment, commercial and industrial property marketing and sales.

Lamb is a local accountant and partner at Chan Nowosad Boates and recently-named member of the Campbell River FUTURE15 club – recognizing the movers and shakers within the Campbell River business community who will take the community into the future – who serves as the board’s vice chair and leads the school’s Finance and Audit Committee, says he’s honoured to have been once again chosen to represent his community on the board.

“I feel very honoured to be re-appointed to the Board of Governors of NIC and I am very excited about the opportunity to represent Campbell River,” Lamb says, adding one of his goals this term is to keep working on the college’s identity and recognition on a wider scale – especially for the Campbell River campus.

“There are a number of ways that we are looking at doing this,” Lamb says.

“One of them is making the Campbell River campus known for a program or offering – not just on the Island but throughout B.C.”

Lamb and Grant were reappointed to the board along with current NIC Board Chair Bruce Bell, a retired lawyer, who has practiced in B.C., Alberta and the United Kingdom and joined the NIC board in 2012. St. Joseph’s General Hospital President and CEO Jane Murphy and the K’ómoks First Nations Chief Robert Everson were also reappointed to their seats on the board, joining community members Vi Mundy, Greg Phelps, Kathleen Nelson and Rhonda Johnson as well as student representatives Peter Hoefgen and Ulysse Ishimwe, support staff representative Cathy Reyno and faculty representative Kim Gibson.
