School trustee Linda Munro will be the next chair of the North Vancouver Board of Education.
Munro, first elected to the board in May 2021 and most recently vice-chair of the board, was acclaimed by fellow trustees to the position Nov. 21.
Munro, who works in communications with Capilano University, was first elected in a byelection by District of North Vancouver voters last year after former school trustee Devon Bruce resigned after two and a half years on the board.
She has cited Indigenous education, inclusive education and fostering positive classroom environments as priorities.
Munro takes over from trustee Kulvir Mann, who has served as chair for the past two years.
Also elected by acclamation Tuesday was trustee Antje Wilson, representing the City of North Vancouver, who will take over the role as vice-chair.
Wilson was elected for the first time in November 2022.
In West Vancouver, long-time board chair Carolyn Broady was also re-elected as chair of the board of education this week by acclamation for her tenth consecutive year in that position. Trustee Nicole Brown has been re-elected as vice-chair by acclamation.
The term of the new chair and vice-chair run from Dec. 1, 2023 to Nov. 30, 2024.
