Why I am voting to Re-Elect Lily Grewal to the VanCity Credit Union Board of Directors

Vote to Re-Elect Lily Grewal to the VanCity Credit Union Board of Directors

I am pleased to again endorse Lily Grewal for re-election to the VanCity Credit Union Board of Directors!

As a former VanCity director, I am particularly keen on good people being elected to the Board of Canada's largest credit union - and the one I do business with professionally and personally - and Lily Grewal is definitely one of those people.

Voting starts Tuesday March 28 and ends and I hope you will cast a ballot for Lily Grewal - who has done a fine job in her first term as a Director the last three years, including serving as Chair of the Human Resources Committee.

It's important that the VanCity Board reflect the diversity and experiences of our entire community - and Lily has helped do that at this very important financial institution: 

Lily is the first South Asian woman elected to the VanCity Board and is also representing the needed perspective of those members who live south of the Fraser River - as a Delta resident.

Lily also brings her strong background of working with immigrant communities, unions, non-profits, social justice, cooperatives and much more. She has a Masters in Social Work with 15 years experience working with communities and non-profits and have spent the last 10 years in government working to help immigrants make BC their home.

Lily has also served on the boards of several other organizations, including the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, the Vancity Community Foundation and the Boys and Girls Club of Delta/Richmond. 

She is committed to progressive values and social justice and I urge you to re-elect Lily.
