BC Soccer Welcomes Three Newly Elected Board Members

Vancouver, BC: The BC Soccer Annual General Meeting took place Saturday, June 10, 2017 and amongst the highlights was the election of three new BC Soccer board members: John Charlton (Vancouver Island), Ralph Luongo (Lower Mainland), and Justus Mirembe (Lower Mainland). Each of these new directors bring a wealth of soccer and sport specific experience ranging from playing and coaching to risk management and strategic thinking.

BC Soccer wishes to thank former board members John Reed, Shannon Foster and Ron Brar who opted not to re-run for election this year.  These individuals have supported the association very well over their terms and BC Soccer thanks them for their individual and collective contributions to BC Soccer and soccer in BC.

BC Soccer also welcomes back: Aiman El-Ramly, 1st Vice President; Rob Brown, Vice President, Adult; Don Moslin, Director; and, Leanna Napolitano, Director who were all re-elected by the membership to the BC Soccer board on two year terms.  BC Soccer is very pleased to have these great volunteers remain with the association to be able to carry on driving the association forward.
