The Victoria Chapter is pleased to welcome our new Steering Committee member, Kira Gill-Maher! Kira has been involved with our Chapter for a while reviving our Chapter’s Instagram page. She has recently graduated from Vancouver Island University’s Master of Community Planning program and is currently working in the field of local government climate action. Welcome, Kira!
Recently graduated from Vancouver Island University's Master of Community Planning, Kira has a strong enthusiasm for how we can plan for low carbon and resilient communities. Now working in the field of local government climate action, she is thrilled to also have the opportunity to support community-based sustainable energy initiatives and programming through the BCSEA.
The Victoria Chapter’s activities are still scaled down due to the Covid 19 pandemic. With our vaccination program and reopening plans, we’re hoping to start more actively engaging in local in-person activities. On that front, the organizers of the Victoria Home Show have now scheduled it to take place on October 15th to 17th at the West Shore Rec Centre. If that does indeed occur, the Victoria Chapter will likely take part so stay tuned for more news.
We welcome new Steering Committee members, September Smith, Yaqiong Wang and Scott Mellett. And we thank Eleri Davies, Jesse Fraser and Larissa Stendie, who are stepping down – our volunteers make it all happen!
