Board Governance and Crisis Management

I helped lead the BC Alliance for Arts + Culture through the COVID pandemic as President over the past three years, helping the ED bring together all of the Arts Service Organizstions of the province to liaise with government and the Public Health Office, and lobby successfully for $18,000,000 in emergency Resiliency funding for the arts sector.

I have also led a major arts organization through accusations of racism as Chair, helping the organization navigate the resulting crisis and reinvent itself, regaining the trust and support of impacted communities and returning to vibrancy. 

And I helped lead Gays and Lesbians of UBC through the AIDS Crisis as President in the 1980s, helping design and deliver some of the first safe-sex campaigns in the city, speaking to classrooms and UBC fraternities and organization, and distributing condoms and safe-sex pamphlets in gay bars throughout Vancouver. 

I also offer extensive board experience at many levels of leadership and would be pleased to assist your Board with any challenges it is confronting.
