THREE NEW appointees have joined the Terrace Economic Development Authority (TEDA) Board after being approved by city council Aug. 9.

Kam Siemens, Christine Slanz and Scott Walter were unanimously approved to the positions to September 2013 by council at its in camera meeting.

Councillor Brad Pollard did not vote because of a possible conflict of interest and left council chambers before the vote. Pollard said the conflict was because he is dating one of the women who applied for the board position.

TEDA is a public-private partnership responsible for promoting the growth and diversification of Terrace’s economy.

New board members join current members chair Rob Dykman, secretary Alexander Pietralla, and directors Brad Pollard, Dave O’Leary, Malte Juergensen and Bob Park. Board members are volunteers and sit for a two-year term.
