The Thompson-Nicola Regional District (TNRD) has reelected the board chair and vice chair.
During the inaugural meeting on Nov. 9, Village of Ashcroft director Barbara Roden and District of Logan Lake director Robin Smith were both acclaimed to their positions.
The TNRD says only one nomination was made for each position, resulting in the acclimation.
In 2022, Roden was elected as chair and Smith was acclaimed as vice-chair, marking the first time in the TNRD’s history that there was an all-female leadership team.
Roden has served on the TNRD board since 2018 and became the first-ever female vice chair in 2021. Meanwhile, Smith has been a board member since 2013.
“It’s a great honour to have my fellow directors put their trust in me for another year, and I’m very happy to be working again with Director Smith as Vice-Chair,” Roden said.
Roden says the past year has been a learning experience for both the board, which about two-thirds were newly-elected in 2022, and herself.
She says she is looking forward to more work to be done over the next year.
“I’m looking forward to seeing some ongoing projects completed, and starting to work on new projects that have been identified as key, including emergency planning and preparedness, accessibility, a new library for southwest Kamloops, and building relationships and partnerships with First Nations,” Roden explains.
