Community Futures British Columbia Executive Director Retires

On behalf of Community Futures BC Board, please find attached announcement regarding Marie Gallant, CFBC Executive Director’s retirement.

Marie has been with the CF program for over 19 years in the roles of volunteer Board member, Business Analyst, General Manager and most recently as CFBC’s Executive Director. 

Through her time with CF, Marie has significantly improved the asset base and financial stability of the organization through the successful negotiation and delivery of a variety of initiatives and leaves the organization financially positioned to address future needs of the program in BC.

Although Marie Gallant will be retiring from her current full-time position with CFBC she will continue to be available to the Community Futures program and other non-profit organizations delivering Board and staff training and support services through the Community Futures Leadership Institute and her own private consulting organization. Marie’s last official day with CFBC will be January 31, 2017 but she will be using up vacation time between now and the end of January and as such will not be in the office.

I’d like to express great appreciation for the hard work that Marie Gallant has done for our network over the past decades and for the deep passion she has always held for the Community Futures movement.

Please join me in wishing Marie the very best in her next chapter.  

Yours sincerely,

Robert Annis

Chair, CFBC
