Choir Administrative Staff
Board of Directors
The board of the Grand Philharmonic Choir meets monthly to govern the family of choirs. Board members are elected to serve three-year terms by members of the choir community, which convene each year for an annual general meeting.
Board chair Nancy Regehr is an experienced leader in the non-profit sector. She took over as board chair in November 2013 and helped manage its transition from a working to a governance board. Nancy holds a certificate in non-profit and voluntary sector management from Ryerson University. She has run the peace- and development-focused charity, Project Ploughshares, for many years. Now retired, she is vice-chair of the board of Menno Homes, which builds affordable rental housing in Waterloo Region, and also chairs the Centre for Security Governance, which studies security transitions in fragile, failed and conflict-affected states. She lives in Waterloo.
