2012 Board of Directors announcements

The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation – Atlantic Region is pleased to announce the appointment of Jodi Hutchinson as Chair of the Atlantic Region board of directors. Jodi is a partner at Red Letter Philanthropy Counsel in Windsor, NS. With a 25- year fundraising career, Jodi brings an exceptional level of philanthropic expertise to the Atlantic Region board of directors. 

Stepping into the role of Vice-Chair is Janice Foran. An accountant by practice, Janice spent close to 20 years in private industry and commercial banking before becoming a partner in Touch of Gold Fine Jewellery in Halifax, NS.

We are also delighted to welcome Nancy Key, of Summerside, PEI, and Dr. David Hoskin, of Halifax NS to the board. Nancy is a breast cancer survivor and partner in the firm of McInnes Cooper in Summerside, while Dr. Hoskin is a researcher in the Departments of Pathology and Microbiology & Immunology at Dalhousie University and is the current CBCF – Atlantic Region Endowed Chair in Breast Cancer Research.

We would like to recognize three outgoing board members for their valued contribution over the past number of years:  Greg Fash, from Boudreau-Ouest, NB; Barbara Waite from Charlottetown, PEl; and Mike McKim, from Lower Sackville, NS. Their leadership has contributed to many successes in our organization, and we appreciate the outstanding commitment of these volunteers.
