As an advocate for community involvement Don has enjoyed participating and leading organizations in achieving their goals. While working with profit and not for profit organizations for over 45 years in several key initiatives he has developed a strong understanding of the rules and regulations that govern many boards and committees. As a leader of volunteer groups made up of individual personalities and objectives, he has successfully managed challenging goals and budgets and helped to raise close to 2 million dollars for not for profit associations. This experience, coupled with his business background, has provided Don with the ability to work within board guidelines helping to achieve the strategic goals and direction as set by the board. Don truly believes that understanding the dynamics and chemistry that exists on a board is vital in supporting a board successful outcome.

Almost 20 years ago Anne lived in Victoria and loved her time here. She moved back to Victoria with her family in 2011 because she felt it would be a great place to raise her kids; offering the amenities of the “big city” while still having a “community” feel. Her family has lived in both Fairfield and Gonzales, so she is quite familiar with many parts of the neighbourhood. Anne’s family gave up their vehicle shortly after moving here because it is such an accessible city by bike. She feels lucky to be in an area that easily allows for exploration and enjoyment of nature. Anne feels a need to be involved in her community so that her kids will grow up knowing a sense of service and belonging, and because she hopes to contribute to the feeling of home they have in Victoria. Anne has served on the FGCA Board of Directors since 2014 and is active in other community groups as well.
David Thompson is a researcher and consultant who has worked for over 20 years in the areas of fiscal and environmental policy, sustainable communities, and organizational development and governance. He has an academic background in law and economics. He has lived in Rockland and James Bay, and is thrilled to have settled with his family and dog in Fairfield Gonzales — where his neighbourhood is full of free-range kids, and people walking in the street say hello to one another.
Bryan Rowley is a graduate student at the University of Victoria and has been working with youth and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) since 2008.
