The Victoria & Islands Branch would like to recognize a member of their Branch, Don Rugg, PAg. Don was the recipient of the Branch Recognition Award at the Victoria & Islands Branch AGM in October 2022. The branch President Jenn Wilson, PAg presented Don with his recognition award in January 2023 at a separate event.
Don joined BCIA in 1976 and was the Executive Director and Registrar for 7 years in the mid-2000s. After that, Don continued to support BCIA by volunteering on our branch executive for three years – one as our branch president in 2012. In 2016, Don stepped back in 2016 as our BCIA acting Registrar. Don has been involved in the Annual PD Audit since 2011. If that wasn’t enough, Don is also the chair of the Investigation Committee as of 2020. He has been a supportive mentor and encouraged many to give back to our BCIA community. Don is a role model for us all.
Congrats to Don for his dedication to the Branch and BCIA!
