Participation Builds Your Community: An Interview with Gary Wilson

What former Board member Gary Wilson has to say about volunteering for the Community:

Why did you join the Cambrian Heights Board?

Because I wanted to help make our community a better place.

What benefits did you get out of your community participation?

I ended up with a good understanding of what the community has to offer my family and I made a lot of good friends in the community.

How much time monthly was required?

As a director I probably averaged two hours per month, that representing my attendance at the monthly meetings. As a planning committee member I probably averaged five or six hours per month between the meetings and handling correspondence around development permits. 

Why would you recommend participation to others?

This is a good way of getting to know your neighbours in the community and making friends among them. It also allows you to get your finger on the pulse of the community and so to understand all that it offers. For someone with free time on their hands, I can see that it would also offer ample opportunity to introduce new activities to the community.
