Gwaii Trust holds annual meeting Dec. 16

  • Nov. 27, 2006 7:00 a.m.

The Gwaii Trust Society will hold its annual general meeting on Saturday, Dec. 16 at 1 pm at the Old Massett community hall, says administrator Tanu Lusignan. The Gwaii Trust, which hands out millions of dollars every year to non-profit groups on the islands, will report on its activities over the past financial year and on how its investments are doing. The Council of the Haida Nation has not yet given the Gwaii Trust official notice about who will be the chair of the society for the next three years, Mr. Lusignan said. Current chair Miles Richardson’s term expires as of the upcoming annual general meeting. He has held the position for the past nine years. The CHN has announced that it has nominated two directors to fill two-year terms: Lawrence Jones (alternate Frank Collison) and Robert A. Young (alternate Captain Gold), Mr. Lusignan said. There are eight directors on the board, representing all the islands communities. The other two terms which expire this December are Sandspit and Central Graham Island. Warren Foster and Jim Abbott were elected to fill those seats on Saturday, although they must now be appointed by the Gwaii Trust board.
