VISC Board of Directors
Stuart first became involved with the Vancouver Island Safety Council over a decade ago while working on a road safety initiative in conjunction with the Old English Car Club of British Columbia (South Island Branch). Based on the success of the program an invitation to join the Board of the Vancouver Island Safety Council was extended- and subsequently happily accepted. While this program is no longer offered, the dedication and passion offered by everyone at VISC made it an easy decision for me to continue my involvement and continue to serve as Chair of the Board for the past several years.
