Moira Jenkins announces resignation from port authority board

Moira Jenkins has resigned as the board chairwoman on the Nanaimo Port Authority board of directors.

Her resignation is effective today, Nov. 22, according to a port authority press release. She also resigned as International Trade User Group representative.

“After three exciting years of working with the port’s management team, customers, port user groups, and community partners, I have decided that it is time to dedicate more time to my family and other community interests.” Jenkins said in the press release.

She was appointed to the Nanaimo Port Authority board in October 2014, and her three-year term on the port authority board expired on Oct. 8.

Jenkins said in the release the past 12 months have been a “rewarding and challenging time” for the port, it was an honour to lead the port board of directors through the recruitment process for the port’s new president and CEO Ewan Moir and that she’s confident he will successfully guide the port into the future.

“I would like to thank Moira for her service and dedication to the Nanaimo Port Authority,” Moir said in the release. “We wish her the very best in her future endeavours and would like to express our gratitude for her contributions both as a director, and as the board chair. While I haven’t had the opportunity to work with Moira for very long, I can see that she is greatly respected in the community, and will no doubt be missed by the staff and board.”

Nanaimo Port Authority is one of 18 Canadian port authorities, established under the Canada Marine Act and Letters Patent to promote and support the national, regional and local economies and to ensure a safe and secure harbour for cargo operations.
