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.
