Board of Directors

The CRIEC Board of Directors brings a wealth of experience to the work of the organization, combining Human Resources, Finance, Risk Management, IT, Legal and Senior Executive expertise, in both the corporate and non-profit sectors. The Board’s role is to provide stewardship, guidance and direction as CRIEC seeks to fulfill its Mission of connecting Talent with Champions in strategies that will lead to successful employment outcomes. The Board meets regularly to review financial matters and strategic outcomes, assess risk and discuss the impact of CRIEC’s work on the larger questions of promoting effective integration, meeting workforce needs and encouraging workplace diversity and inclusion.

The CRIEC Board continues its dedication to making a positive difference in our community. CRIEC, and indeed the whole Calgary region, has been blessed by its collective commitment, sage wisdom and resourcefulness.

The CRIEC Board and staff wish to thank our former Chair Ada Adeleke-Kelani, Treasurer Virginia Baescu and Darren Mondor for their dedicated service as Officers and Directors. Each of these awesome volunteer Board members helped ensure CRIEC stayed true to its Vision, worked every day to complete its Mission and lived its Values in carrying out its activities. Thanks for your wisdom, guidance and energy. Ada, Virginia and Darren remain a CRIEC mentor, champion and true friend.
