Wendy Prystay

Community Futures Pacific Northwest

Wendy Prystay has called Prince Rupert home for over 40 years.  Wendy not only understands the deep connection between education, CED and community resiliency, but has made it her mission.

In 2009, she joined the Board of Directors of Community Futures Pacific Northwest. Within a few years she was nominated to the position of Chair and led the Board for the next seven years supporting such initiatives as the Metlakatla Wilderness Trail, the Cow Bay Marina and Community Wharf, and ReDesign Rupert. And when her runway as Board Chair ran out, she joined the Loans Committee.

Wendy participated as a Director on the Community Futures BC Board for 6 years from 2012 to 2018 and she continued her role as Treasurer as a non-voting officer of the Board for 2019.


Adam Hawryluk

Adam was also awarded the 2018 local CF Volunteer Award.

He has offered his many business skills and development expertise to the Board of Directors (2011 to present), Chair of the Loans Committee (2011 to present) and previously Chair of the Marketing Committee (2011-2014).

His extensive community involvement resulted in his nomination for the Top 20 Under 40 from 2012-2016, the presidency of the Young Professionals of Nanaimo  and past directorship of the Greater Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce.

He is one of the inspiring millennial generation who can bring new thinking to move the Community Futures Network forward.
