Announcement from the President of Badminton BC

Following the 2017 Annual General Meeting, the Badminton BC Board recommitted to optimizing the operations of the association in an effort to facilitate a more effective and efficient approach to the execution of the 2017-2020 Strategic Plan.  A broad and challenging objective for the Board considering its current fiscal realities. 

In reaching this decision, Badminton BC will say good bye to Executive Director, Penny Gardner whose leadership, experience, caring, and influence were instrumental in activating number of activities in an effort to turn things around.   The Board extends our best wishes to Penny for the future and our gratitude for the many contributions and professionalism during her tenure.

Since coming to this decision, the Board launched an executive search and identified Nancy Thompson as the new Executive Director. However, due to personal reasons, Nancy will be unable to assume the role. Her last day with the organization was May 31, 2018.

Effective June 1, 2018, the Board has appointed Director-at-Large, Daisy Lee, to the position of Interim Executive Director until such time the organization becomes financially stable and a permanent Executive Director is recruited. Daisy Lee is known in the BC masters community where she has been a long-time active player.  She is familiar with the not for profit environment having served on the Badminton BC board of nearly 3 years making many key contributions and decisions. We have enlisted her assistance to continue the turnaround work.

Moving forward, Badminton BC will work tirelessly in its pursuit of a more diversified revenue generation plan with a focus on increased donations and sponsorships for key programs such as competitions and the Excellence program in an effort to financially secure the organization for the future.

Although many challenges still lie ahead, the Board wishes to celebrate the accomplishments of Badminton BC’s strategic priorities since 2014.
