At our Annual General Meeting on June 23, Peel CAS welcomed six new members to our Board of Directors and elected a new Board executive. Congratulations to Carol Kotacka, who was appointed Board President, Lemmy Maingi, who is now Vice President, Silvia Devlin, who became Secretary, and Arminda Gonzalez-Dumpierrez, who was appointed Member at Large.


We are pleased to welcome the following new members to our Board of Directors:

Jatinder Chera 

Lisa Hewison 

Nakiema Palmer

Amir Shah 

Amy Smith

Selina Young 


We are proud to have a diverse set of individuals on our Board, representing a wide range of cultural backgrounds and professional and lived experience. We are grateful to all our Board members for volunteering their time and effort to help lead our agency during this transformational time.


Many thanks to all our departing Board members for their support and dedication. In particular, we recognize Juliet Jackson, who was a member of our Board of Directors for 9 years and served as President since 2017. She has led our agency with grace, vision, enthusiasm, and pride. We are grateful for her service and wish her, along with our other outgoing Board members, the very best in their future endeavours.
