It has been a busy few months since our Annual General Meeting and we are happy to announce some changes to our Board. Please join me in welcoming and extending a warm AFP Vancouver welcome to our newest board members, Travis Powell, Rob Nernberg and Matthew Goldsworthy.

Travis Travis Powell joined our Board in August 2017 as Social Media & Communications Chair. His role is to build our social media presence and keep our membership updated through our website. Travis is Treasury Manager at Telus and recently became a CPA.

Rob Rob Nernberg joined our Board in May 2017 as Membership Chair. This role takes the lead on growing membership for our chapter through various activities and initiatives. In addition, Rob also took the lead to organize our golf tournament this year. Rob is Vice-President, Corporate Cash Management at TD Securities.

Matthew Matthew Goldsworthy joined the Board in the fall of 2016 as our Programs Chair. He has been busy planning and organizing luncheon presentations for AFP Vancouver. His day job is at HSBC in the role of Assistant Vice-President of Global Liquidity and Cash Management.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to any of our board members directly with your ideas for sessions, introductions for new members, or your thoughts on events or the website. We are always happy to hear from you.

While we are pleased to welcome new members to our board, we say farewell to others who have well served our membership for the last number of years

Don Don Weylie was been our Membership Director for the last several years. He worked hard to build our membership through various initiatives and was always there to help out with the hosting or registration duties at many of our events. We thank Don for all of his efforts.

Jackie Farewell also to Jackie Gray who has been on the board for the past five years. She first joined as Communications Director and most recently was Vice-President & Special Events Director. Jackie did a great job planning all of our networking, Christmas and golf events over the years. Thank you Jackie for all of your hard work.

Allan Finally we bid farewell to Allan Chen who has been on the board for the past 11 years, first as Secretary and for the last 6 years as Programs Director. Allan recently moved to Victoria and has joined BC Pension Corporation. While he is no longer on the Board, we are pleased Allan is staying on as part of the Communications committee to manage our website and LinkedIn profile.

We wish all the best to our departing Directors and we thank them for all their hard work and dedication to our Association and to the treasury profession in general. Although, they will be missed on the Board, they are all continuing members and we will still see them at AFP Vancouver events !
