Electoral Area E director and former board chair Rhona Martin will be continuing her role as vice chair.

Caleb Moss, representing the town of Golden, was also nominated for vice chair but declined the chance to be voted into the role stating he appreciated the balance of having one municipal and one electoral area director on the board leadership.

The regional district board also voted to adopt its 2021 meeting schedule which will see board meetings proceeding on the third Thursday of each month as usual. The only exception is the December 2021 meeting which will be held on Dec. 9.
