Immediately following the member election of Tanya Sinclair to the HRPA Board of Directors, I am pleased to share that Louis Kan has been appointed as our first Non-Member Director.

HRPA is fortunate to benefit from the service of so many dedicated volunteers. Our Board, in particular, has been greatly advantaged because of the unique strengths and skills of our public appointees and now from our Non-Member Director Appointments.

Louis is an experienced finance and governance executive, and the former Chief Executive Officer of Professional Geoscientists Ontario. His professional experiences also include senior administrative roles at the Chartered Professional Accountants Ontario, the Legislative Assembly of Ontario, Elections Ontario and the Office of the Auditor General of Ontario.

Louis will hold a two-year term effective immediately. You can review his professional experience below.

A sincere thank-you to our Board Nominating and Governance and Nominating Committees for their efforts in the recruitment and selection of our first Non-Member Director.

Please join me in welcoming Louis to the Board.

Sincerely,

Bob Thompson, Board Chair
