CVRD Board Elects Chair and Vice-Chair

On Tuesday, November 7, 2023 the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) held its inaugural board meeting.

The CVRD Board is made up of local elected officials appointed by their respective councils, along with elected CVRD representatives from the three electoral areas. Each November, the CVRD Directors elect the Chair and Vice-Chair positions for the board for the coming year.

This year the board elected Will Cole-Hamilton as Board Chair and Jonathan Kerr as Board Vice-Chair. Chair Cole-Hamilton is from the City of Courtenay and Vice-Chair Kerr is from the Town of Comox. Both will serve in these positions for the next year.

"The CVRD Board is committed to delivering programs and services that address the needs of the Comox Valley and align with our strategic drivers. We've named five focal points for service delivery: fiscal responsibility, climate crisis, community partnerships, indigenous relations, and our newest driver accessibility, diversity, equity and inclusion," states Chair Cole-Hamilton. "As we head into financial planning, the drivers will help to ensure our services are delivered in meaningful ways."
