Young professionals elect board of directors

The Young Professionals of Nanaimo continues its mandate to create a vibrant and connected young professional community in the city and support the professional development of its members.

The not-for-profit organization is entering its third year and recently appointed a new board of directors.

Incoming president Leif Bogwald said he’s thrilled with the balance of previous board members and new faces.

Joining Bogwald on the board is Dan Kucherka, vice-president; Mike Delves, treasurer; Daniel Martinez, secretary; Chris Cathers, public relations; Adam Hawryluk, professional development; Elise Morgan, events; Jocelyn Matwe, communications; and Braden Wheatcroft, membership.

The group was instrumental in fundraising for the renovations of the Nanaimo Train Station on Selby Street, and have initiated community garden projects at the Island Highway and Turner Road and the corner of Irwin and Needham streets.
