Member at Large – Plamondon
I have been involved with Community Futures for many years, and have expanded my role as a Director on the Board to broaden my knowledge of the operational side of the business.
Over the past year we have been successful at reducing loan delinquencies and realigning with Western Diversification policies. As we look to the future, I would like to see Community Futures continue to improve working relationships with our many stakeholders and increase the exposure of what CF does ultimately leading to increased loan growth.
Director – Member at Large – Lac La Biche
This is my first year of serving on the Community Futures Board. As a Realtor, I am able to contribute my knowledge of the current Real Estate market to other members of the board to help make sound discussions in investments.
I have been a resident of Lac La Biche since 1988 and have witnessed first hand the effects of the highs and lows that the oil/gas sector has on our communities economy. I support CF in there vision to help diversify our economy for a strong and steady growth. CF is more than just support for new and existing business ideas and financing. There involvement in Education and Tourism is the foundation that will keep our “Community” moving forward in the “Future”.
Director – Member at Large – Kikino Metis Settlement
I have spent most of my adult life working in the Oil industry in Alberta. In 2010, I left that industry and started to pursue my passion of trying to help our Aboriginal communities participate in the Alberta and Federal economies.
As a local entrepreneur, I was aware of the many business opportunities available to people in our Region, however as an Aboriginal person I knew there were a few barriers for our people to overcome to participate within the local economy. When I found out that Community Futures had the ability to help our local people access capital to start new businesses, I was more than interested to join the Board of Directors and start helping promote business development in our Aboriginal communities. Having Community Futures help bridge that gap for our people needing that access to Capitol is critical to the future business startup for many in our Region. Being able to participate with an awesome group like the Lac La Biche Community Futures will enable me to help fulfill my life long dream of helping our Aboriginal people pursue and hopefully achieve economic self sufficiency for our entrepreneurs.
