BOARD 2017 - 18
Rod Layman -- Chair
Before moving permanently to Lion's Head in 2013 Rod worked in the electrical trade and property management for housing co-ops and non-profits. He is very interested in renewable energy and green building technologies. BPEG's has provided many opportunities to learn about our environment and become connected to the community here. As a totally volunteer-driven organization, BPEG's board has a very hands-on job keeping the organization going.
Esme Batten -- Vice-Chair
Susie King -- Secretary
Trevor Anderson -- Treasurer
Joanne Rodgers is interested in preserving the special natural qualities of the Bruce, now and in the future. As a full time resident, she lives and works here. She would like to see more economic growth and job opportunities but at the same time not lose those qualities of the Bruce that make it such an amazing place. Having worked as a Process Auditor in government and the private sector, she believes in having well-documented (and supported) policies and guidelines to maintain any quality product. BPEG is a great vehicle for education and conversations which gave her a better understanding of the community.
She enjoys hiking and floating in the bay in her kayak!
Megan Myles -- Past Chair
Megan Myles grew up on the Bruce Peninsula where she now lives, works and plays. In 2016, she opened The Fitz Hostel in Lion's Head. In fall 2016, through BPEG, she instigated an initiative to promote sustainable tourism on the peninsula and continues to work on this project with other local organizations. Megan graduated with a Bachelor of Arts and Sciences from Quest University Canada in Squamish, British Columbia where she specialized in collaboration and environmental studies and earned an honourable mention for her thesis on collaboration among small-scale farmers in rural Ontario. Any chance she gets, Megan enjoys hiking, road trips, live music, and sipping coffee at the farmers' market on Saturday morning.
