The RDEK Board of Directors has re-elected Rob Gay as Chair for the coming year.

“I have learned a lot over the past year about the roles and responsibilities of being Chair and I am grateful for the continued support of my fellow Board members,” Gay said.

“We have started to work on our strategic priorities, which will set our work plan for 2013 and I am looking forward to another dynamic year.”

This will be the Electoral Area C Director’s second term as Chair of the RDEK. He has been on the Board since 2005.

Electoral Area F Director Wendy Booth was elected as Vice Chair for 2013.

“I am honoured to be elected Vice Chair. I am eager to continue to work together with the Board to achieve our priorities and keep the best interests of the organization and this region at the forefront,” Booth said.

This will be her first term as Vice Chair.

The Board Chair and Vice Chair are elected annually at the December RDEK Board Meeting.
