TransLink has announced some upcoming changes to who sits on its board of directors.
Two new directors have appointed, says the regional transit authority in a news released issued today (November 16).
They are Barry Forbes, president and CEO of Westminster Savings and Credit Union and former chair of the Fraser Health Authority, and Don Rose, who has held senior governance roles at Placer Dome and Columbia Power Corporation.
Forbes and Rose replace outgoing board chair Dale Parker and director David Unruh who have decided to not seek reappointment.
As well, Nancy Olewiler, a professor in the Simon Fraser University economics department, has been reappointed to serve a second term on the board.
The returning director and new directors were appointed by the Mayors’ Council on Regional Transportation to each serve three-year terms starting on January 1, 2011.
According to TransLink, the board of directors oversees the regional transportation authority’s finances, major capital projects, operations, and strategic planning.
