ArtSpring has a new Board of Directors whose members would like you to know a bit about them. Each month, you will hear news about one board member and learn what the diverse group of people we have on board are doing. The group cares deeply about ArtSpring and its community.
This month we feature Carole Eyles, who is new to the board but not to Salt Spring. She has lived here for 33 years: many of those years were spent working as a teacher-librarian, raising children, and being active in the Fulford Water Service. She currently swims with the Salt Spring Seals and sings with the Salt Spring Singers.
Carole has just been appointed to the Salt Spring Island Governance Study Committee, where she chairs its Terms of Reference committee, to determine what people feel works on this island and what doesn’t. The newly formed committee will gather information and community input, ultimately reporting to the Ministry of Sport and Community Development, to ascertain whether Islanders want to continue governance as it is or to go some other direction.
Sounds like a typically contentious Salt Spring endeavor! The new committee is lucky to have Carole: calm, wise, and experienced.
