During the recent Regional District of Kootenay Boundary Board meeting, Electoral Area C/Christina Lake Director Grace McGregor was re-elected by the board as vice-chair for a fifth consecutive term.

McGregor has served as her area’s director since 2005.

Also elected was Director Linda Worley as chair by the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary Board of Directors. Worley is the rep for Electoral Area B/ Lower Columbia-Old Glory, and was first elected to office in 2010.

Both the board chair and vice-chair serve a one-year term.

“I am grateful to the Board for once again placing its faith in me,” McGregor said in a RDKB media release.

“I will strive for unity and for positive changes to the Board,” adding that she anticipates the day when the Board can once again meet in person."

At its statutory meeting earlier today, Director Linda Worley was elected chair by the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary Board of Directors.  The representative for Electoral Area B/ Lower Columbia-Old Glory, Worley was first elected to office in 2010.

“I would like to thank the Board of Directors for electing me chair for the coming year,” said Worley.

“I will, as always, endeavor to represent the will of the Board and respectfully listen and hear the diverse voices around our region. I will continue to advocate for the Board and our communities.” Worley added she looks forward to working with Vice-chair McGregor and learning from her “vast experience and knowledge.”

Outgoing RDKB chair Diane Langman served in the role since 2019.

"I want to thank our Board for the honour of being elected as Chair of the RDKB Board of Directors for the past two years," Langman explained.

"Overall, it has been a wonderful experience where I have had the pleasure to work more closely with other Directors throughout our region, learn more about our area and to truly appreciate the amount of depth and knowledge our staff have at the Regional District. It has truly been an honour and a privilege, and I look forward to helping to support Chair Worley as she transitions into this role.

"I wish Chair Worley, Vice-chair McGregor and our RDKB Board of Directors continued success and thank the RDKB management and staff for their support over the past two years."
