2014-2015 Board of Directors

The NWO Innovation Centre benefits from the experience, connections and talents of our volunteer Board of Directors.  These community focused business leaders don't just have lunch eight or nine times per year, they work hard to set the strategic direction for the organization, ensure financial accountability and provide their insights, access to their networks and support to this organization.  The current Board of Directors is profiled below.
