United Way names new members to board of directors

Frank Dunham, Lara Holtby, Linday Babineau and Heather Johnson invited

United Way Fraser Valley has invited four members of its campaign committee to join its board of directors.

Frank Dunham, the former superintendent of the Mission school district, is returning to the United Way board after a short break.

New to the board are Lara Holtby of KPMG, Lindsay Babineau of Canadian Western Bank, and Heather Johnson of Prospera Credit Union.

Johnson is also taking over the role as campaign chair from Robin Marshall, also from Prospera, who led last year’s record-breaking campaign.

Johnson has had a lead position on cabinet for a number of years.

“I am pleased to help make a difference in the local Fraser Valley community,” she said. “By assisting the United Way, I am able to focus on one organization that supports important priority areas and many local agencies.”

Board president Tamara Van den Brink of RBC said she is “thrilled to be gaining some incredible people, with so much experience, to the board.”

“These individuals are already extremely dedicated to making our communities a better place to live; we will all benefit by having their input at a board level.”
