Laurie Dyck has been named the new president of the board of directors for United Way of the Fraser Valley (UWFV).

Dyck has been an Abbotsford resident and employee of the Fraser Valley Regional Library for 36 years.

“I am thrilled to be the new chair of the United Way of the Fraser Valley,” she said. “I have been a director of the UWFV since January 2008, and I have had the pleasure of watching it grow as a positive force in the community. I look forward to even more growth and a greater impact in the lives of people living in the Fraser Valley in the coming year.”

Dyck is an active member of the Canadian Union of Public Employees, serving on the executive of the Fraser Valley District Council (CUPE locals) and the Fraser Valley Labour Council.
