Surrey, BC May 5, 2020 – The Board of Directors of Seniors Come Share Society is pleased to announce that Louise Tremblay will take on the role of Executive Director replacing Susan Moore. Tremblay will officially start her new position on May 19, 2020.
Tremblay was most recently a Director of Development for The Semiahmoo Foundation, part of UNITI, the umbrella for The Semiahmoo Foundation, Semiahmoo House Society, and Peninsula Estates Housing Society.
She was also a Regional Mentor for the BC Association of Community Response Networks where she developed and supported five formalized Community Response Networks to create cohesive community-based initiatives to build awareness of – and response to – adult abuse, neglect and self-neglect through public, private and not-forprofit agencies and community members.
“This is an exciting day for Seniors Come Share Society. Louise’s strong leadership style, passion, vision and energy makes her a perfect candidate,” says Doug Hart, Acting Board Chair. “She is well-known in the community and has a good working relationship with all levels of government. She also has a strong business background in the not-for profit and corporate sectors and for the last six years has been involved as a Director and Board Chair for Seniors Come Share Society.”
Tremblay has a Master of Arts in Leadership from Royal Roads University in Victoria. Her extensive volunteering activities include working for organizations providing services to seniors and people with disabilities and translating social science books for children with learning disabilities.
"I am thrilled to be joining Seniors Come Share Society as its new Executive Director,” says Louise Tremblay. “This is an amazing organization that has earned a reputation of service excellence since its inception over 42 years ago. I look forward to ensuring that our seniors stay connected, get involved and live well and safely in an inclusive community."
For over 40 years, Seniors Come Share Society has provided older adults and their families with services, programs and resources necessary to remain educated, engaged and, most importantly, empowered members of their community.
