Judith Chambers begins First Term as Board Chair

Judith Chambers has begun her first term as chair of the board of trustees. She succeeds Elba Haid who held the position for five years.

“I want to thank Elba for the phenomenal job she did as Chair, including staying on an extra year. She’s worked tirelessly for Manitoba Opera, both as board member and as chair, giving generously of her time and her financial resources,” commented Larry Desrochers, General Director & CEO.  “She is one of those rare leaders who is ambassador, an advocate, and yes, an asker.  We are so fortunate that she will be taking a very active role in the upcoming endowment campaign.

I’m looking forward to working with Judith over the next few years as she takes on the role of Chair. I know Judith will lead Manitoba Opera with a deep commitment to the company and a love for the art form – feelings that are shared by so many in the community.”
