Introducing new Director Lynne Charbonneau
The Board of Directors is a key link between our members and our organization.
Following the 2019 AGM, after eight years of dedicated service as a Director, Yuri Fulmer submitted his resignation with one year remaining in his term. We thank Mr. Fulmer for his service and positive contributions. As BlueShore Financial’s Rules permit the Board to appoint a Director to complete the unexpired portion of a Director’s term in the event of a vacancy, the Board unanimously voted to appoint Lynne Charbonneau to complete the balance of Mr. Fulmer’s three year term, which expires in 2020.
As a lawyer, speaker and consultant in the field of innovation in the legal industry, Lynne brings a significant depth of legal and financial expertise to the BlueShore Financial Board. She serves on the Futures Task Force of the Law Society of British Columbia and the Dean’s Advisory Committee for the Centre for Business Law at the Peter A. Allard School of Law at the University of British Columbia. She also serves as Vice-Chair of the Board of Directors of Actsafe Safety Association. From 2005 until 2018, Lynne was Deputy General Counsel at HSBC Bank Canada. Prior to that, she was a partner of the Canadian national law firm Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP, where she practiced in the fields corporate and securities law.
Lynne’s previous volunteer work includes 12 years in various Director and committee positions with the Heart and Stroke Foundation. She also served for seven years as a Director of the BC Medical Service Foundation and five years as a Director of and pro bono legal counsel to the BC Chamber of Commerce.
You can learn about all our Directors on our website. All Directors, whether appointed, acclaimed or elected, are required to submit their nomination to be considered for re-election at the end of their term and this will apply to Ms. Charbonneau for 2020.
