Prince George, B.C. – Jim Martin , the Chief Administrative Officer for the Regional District  of Fraser Fort George,  has  some new duties .Martin has been named a Director on the BC Games Society,  one of nine new Directors to   join  that team.

” Being appointed to the B.C. Games Society is quite a privilege” says Martin.   “It allows me to   provide  a perspective of the north  on the B.C. Games,  both summer and winter games,  and policy development at the Board Level”.

Martin has a  lot of Games experience, having been the Vice  Chair   and treasurer of the 2015 Canada Winter Games Society “It gives me  a Board  perspective and a multi sport perspective which is what the   BC Games is all about as well.”

Martin   can also  offer a perspective from the point of a parent of  athletes “Both my children  have been involved in ski racing and soccer, and I am still  currently active as an official in alpine skiing as well  and I will continue  on in that capacity.  So sport is a big part of our life, and   it’s a really good fit  with the BC Games Society.”

The BC Games Society  says  all nine new Directors have been chosen  because of their particular areas of expertise.   As Martin  has  extensive  experience in  regional government,  he  thinks those skills  will be valuable to the BC Games Society  “With  my experience  on various Boards, and being CAO  with local government,  I think they’re   going to  find  that finance piece as well, that I will be able to offer.”
