VICTORIA — Rick Glumac has been elected as president of the Pacific NorthWest Economic Region (PNWER) and will serve a one-year term.
Glumac, MLA for Port Moody-Coquitlam and Premier David Eby’s liaison for the Pacific Northwest, was elected by the PNWER Delegate Council at the annual summit held in Boise, Idaho recently.
As PNWER president, Glumac will work to strengthen the organization and enhance the benefits of increased co-operation and partnerships among the 10 member provinces, territories and states, indicates a release.
“As president, my focus will be to strengthen PNWER’s capacity on the Canadian side of the border so that we can undertake even more successful cross-border collaboration,” Glumac said in a statement. “As a region, we are diverse, but we share many common interests. I look forward to working with my colleagues on issues related to energy transition, clean transportation and so much more.”
