Board of Directors
MJKO works hard to attract volunteers that will compliment one another’s skills and supply our staff, program volunteers with the expertise needed to guide a successful not-for profit organization. The Board of Directors is a diverse group of committed volunteers with an array of skills and experience. We are proud of our current Board.
Brian is a retired Professional Engineer. When not providing emergency response support, he spent most of his career in the Federal government developing national environmentally friendly construction methods, regulatory guidelines and training packages preventing damage to Canada’s fish habitat resource. As a past national trainer, he has enhanced facilitator skills, multi-stakeholder conflict resolution training, cross-cultural sensitivity awareness and public presentation experience. He has extensive knowledge in the areas of project development, contracts and grant proposal reviews.
Brian’s faith community, the Salvation Army, places a high value on people, no matter their social background or ethnic origin. To help people better their lives is an incredible privilege.
