Campaign Cabinet

Fundraising Campaign

Welcome Ken Johnston as Campaign Cabinet Co-Chair                                        

We’re delighted to announce that Ken Johnston has joined Craig Curtis as Co-Chair to lead the 2016 Fundraising Campaign for United Way Central Alberta. Ken has been a long-time supporter, so we know he’ll be out-the-door and onto campaign trail without further ado well before our Kick Off in September.

With over 40 years of experience working for Scotiabank (winning several National Awards, we might add) and training as a financial planner, Ken brings a great deal of business acumen to the role. We will be looking to him to help us understand the needs of our workplace relationships during this time of economic challenge in Alberta. Of course, we love that he also has fundraising experience, having served on boards with Parkland Youth Homes, STARS and other charities.

Ken has also been a City of Red Deer Councillor since 2013, as well as active in volunteer in various leadership roles for the Rotary Club and Westerner Park. You can learn more about him on The City of Red Deer’s website.

Welcome Ken! We look forward to working with you.
