OLDS INSTITUTE CHAIR
The Olds Institute for Community & Regional Development (OI) has a new board chair and three new board members.
The new chair is Cody Becker who sat as a board member in the previous year. Past chair, Dan Daley, will stay on as a board member.
“As a citizen of Olds, and as a business person in Olds, every day I enjoy the fruits of the work that the Olds Institute does and I am very proud to be part of this organization,” Becker says.
The new board members are Brett Muzychka, David Doyle and Bill Hall, all of whom were chosen by acclamation.
Other sitting board members – also chosen by acclamation – are Linda Wallace, Greg MacIntyre and Mary Turner.
The changes were announced during OI’s annual general meeting, held recently at the Olds Golf Club.
The essential members are represented on the board by Norm McInnis (Town of Olds), Tami Gardner (Olds Regional Exhibition), Tom Thompson (Olds College) and Barb Babiak (Olds & District Chamber of Commerce).
Two retiring directors, Jared Reist and Wayne Notley were thanked for their dedication to the Olds Institute. Notley will continue to sit on the board of Mountain View Power, which is owned by OI.
Directors typically serve a three-year term on the board.
OI was formed in 2001 by community leaders who realized they could achieve more together than they could apart. It is governed by a volunteer board of directors representing the four founding members and includes members of the community at large.
