Clint Johnston has been elected as a Member at Large for the B.C. Teachers’ Federation’s executive committee.

A vote for key positions within the organization was held on the weekend at the BCTF annual general meeting. Johnston, who is also president of the Chilliwack Teachers’ Association, is now one of eight members at large.

In his thank you speech to fellow members, Johnston thanked all of his supporters.

“I look forward to representing you and I hope I’m worthy of your support,” he said.

Jim Iker was re-elected as BCTF president, and will serve a third one-year term. First vice-president Glen Hansman and second vice-president Teri Mooring were also re-elected in their positions.

“I am very grateful to BC teachers for all their support, commitment, and solidarity this past year,” Iker said. “It is an honour to lead this great union and be the spokesperson in our collective advocacy for better working and learning conditions across British Columbia. In the coming year, we will continue our push to ensure BC’s public education system is properly funded so teachers and students have the support they need in our schools.”

Other newly-elected members at large include Mike Ball from Nanaimo, Gail Chaddock-Costello from Langley, James Sanyshyn from Burnaby and Paul Steer from Delta. Returning members are Carole Gordon from Kelowna, Karen Langenmaier from Comox and Norm Sabourin from Boundary.
