Changes on the Board

29 August 2012

OUTSPORT TORONTO is sad to announce the resignation of Mac Gunter as a director.  Mac was involved from the beginning in the creation of OUTSPORT TORONTO, working on the Governance Committee that drafted the first set of bylaws for the then association, and acting as OUTSPORT TORONTO’s first Secretary Treasurer.  He continued his contributions through heavy involvement in both the 2011 and 2012 Pride and SportZone activities, both Scrums, and was the driving force behind OUTSPORT TORONTO’s successful Trillium Grant application.

“Mac’s contribution to OUTSPORT TORONTO was huge!” noted OUTSPORT TORONTO’s chair Shawn Sheridan.  “He has been incredibly dedicated to OUTSPORT TORONTO’s mission, vision, and values.  He was a fantastic team player, and I will personally miss him on our board.”

OUTSPORT TORONTO is pleased to announce the appointment of David Carter as Secretary Treasurer.  In addition to a BSc. from the University of Waterloo, David is also a Chartered Accountant and a Certified Management Accountant in Canada, and a Certified Public Accountant in the US.  An avid swimmer, cyclist, runner, and inline-skater, David has been a long-time contributor to the LGBT community, volunteering for organisations such as Fife House.

“I was really attracted to OUTSPORT TORONTO’s mission, vision, and values.  I felt that this was a good time for me to re-engage in some volunteer work, and that OUTSPORT TORONTO was the right place to do that,” stated David Carter.

“We’re delighted that David has joined our team,” said OUTSPORT TORONTO’s chair Shawn Sheridan.  “His background and experience will bring us to a new level, and will be highly beneficial to both OUTSPORT TORONTO and our member LGBT Sport and Rec organisations.”
