Meet SVP board director Dan Bowditch. Dan has been active in almost all things SVP since he and his wife Ursula became partners in 2009. Dan has been a Lead Partner several times, chairs the Partner Engagement Committee, volunteered on the old grants committee, can be seen at most opportunities committee meetings, participates in the IT Community of Practice and helped with readying the SpencerCreo Centre. He became a director at last year’s AGM.
Dan’s favourite SVP things to do are many and include hands on involvement with Investees, including directly volunteering at their events, visiting Investees in action on SVP Seeing is Believing Tours, and even attending SVP Investment Committee and Board meetings.
3 things you didn’t know about me…
- I co-founded three environmental groups in the 1970’s and 80’s
- I am a past president of the international Geospatial Information & Technology Association, serving six years on their board and traveling to four continents during the year 2000 when I was president
- For the past 12 years I’ve chaired the board of the non-profit Rogue Folk Club which presents 60-70 local, BC, Canadian and international concerts annually in Vancouver. It’s like a year round folk festival and is one of Vancouver’s best kept secrets, a little like SVP
