The Board of Directors,
and the governance of the Naramata Centre Society.


Naramata Centre has an active and engaged Board.

The direction and operations of the Centre and our Society are set and overseen by the Board of Directors. The Board meets four times a year, at Naramata Centre in spring, summer and fall, and in Vancouver or Calgary in the winter. Between the in-person meetings, the Board meets monthly by teleconference as needed. 

Our executive team is comprised of chair, vice-chair, treasurer, secretary and communications lead. Board members each bring skills and experience that are put into service on committees, special projects, etc.

Management of the Centre

In early 2018, the Board hired Managing Director, Dennis Hixson for a two-year term, and our office staff team: Office Administrator Tanya Eckenswiller and Program Manager Charmaine Pearce. 

How can you get involved?

The Board of Directors is grateful for the support of all who are involved with the Centre through participating in our programs and staying on-site in the spring, summer or fall months, volunteering, staying informed through our communications (see below) and/or donating to the Centre.

Ensure you receive information and invitations from us.
