JIBC board elects new chair
A senior litigation lawyer for the Ministry of Justice is the new chair of the New Westminster-based Justice Institute of B.C. (JIBC).
Doug Eastwood was elected at the JIBC board of governors meeting on Saturday, July 28. He's previously served on the BC Council of Human Rights board and as a strategic advisor to the deputy attorney general.
He replaces Mary Manning who has served her maximum six-year term as has vice-chair Jim Carr-Hilton. Kim Logan, director of government relations for Telus, and James McGregor, a retired Langley fire chief, will be the board's new vice-chairs.
New governors appointed were lawyer Tamara Olding, UBC faculty of medicine's head of emergency medicine Dr. Jim Christenson, Abbotsford police chief Bob Rich and accountant Helen Dutch.
The board is expected to announce a replacement for JIBC president Jack McGee, who is retiring at the end of September, in the coming weeks.
