The volunteer Board of Directors meets regularly to ensure that the mandate and mission of Action Line Housing Society and Seton Villa Society are being met in the best way possible. Board members come from all walks of life, and bring their interest, skills and expertise to the organization. They are active on Committees and meet regularly with residents to listen and take actions where needed.
Current Board of Directors
Barbara Spitz, President: The backbone of any society are its volunteers. I wanted to use my experiences to serve the community. A teacher by training, I organized and was a sports administrator. I have been on the Seton Villa Board for over ten years and now have the honour of being President. Burnaby has been my home for over 60 years, raised my three children, and now have four “perfect” grandchildren.
William Fung: Having grown up in Vancouver before returning to Hong Kong for a quarter-century, I have recently returned with qualifications in accounting, internal audit, corporate secretaryship and governance. I had direct exposure to the elderly health and welfare support whilst living in Hong Kong, through my late mother who had Alzheimer’s Disease and remained in elderly care for two decades. I bring my insight from that experience plus the perspective of a family member of a resident, along with my professional knowledge, to serve the Board and the Society.
