At its first meeting since the local government elections in November, the Islands Trust Council elected a chair and three vice-chairs recently to form the Islands Trust Executive Committee for the 2014-2018 term.

Council also elected two representatives to sit on the Trust Fund Board. Nominees answered questions from trustees about the skills and values they would bring to these leadership positions, according to a news release from the Islands Trust.

The new chair of the Islands Trust Council is Peter Luckham from the Thetis Island Local Trust Area. The three new vice-chairs are: Trustee Laura Busheikin of the Denman Island Local Trust Area, Trustee George Grams of the Salt Spring Island Local Trust Area and Trustee Susan Morrison of the Lasqueti Island Local Trust Area.

The Islands Trust executive committee oversees daily business of the Islands Trust between quarterly meetings of the entire council. It has legislated responsibilities to consider approval of bylaws developed by local trust committees and Bowen Island Municipality. Members also serve as chairs of the 12 local trust committees that have authority for land use planning and regulation in the Islands Trust Area.

The Islands Trust Council also elected Trustee Kate-Louise Stamford of the Gambier Island Local Trust Area and Trustee Tony Law of the Hornby Island Local Trust Area to serve on the Trust Fund Board, a land conservancy for Canada’s islands in the Salish Sea. The executive committee then Lasqueti Island’s Morrison as its representative to the Trust Fund Board.
