Vyda Ng Chosen as CUC Interim Executive Director

Vyda Ng

THE CUC BOARD of Trustees is delighted to announce that Vyda Ng has accepted our offer to take on the position of Interim Executive Director.

The Board of Trustees thanks the many people across the country who participated in the process of reviewing the job description of the Executive Director in early January. Out of that consultation came a recommendation to search for a two year interim executive director who has a strong knowledge and understanding of Canadian Unitarian Universalism.

Vyda is uniquely qualified for this position through her long involvement with the Canadian Unitarian Council, as a Board member, Board President, chair of two national CUC task forces, and in a number of other volunteer roles. In addition to her experience within our Unitarian Universalist movement, Vyda’s prior experience as a counselor and as Executive Director of the Coalition Against Violence in St. John’s have contributed to developing her skills in working with people with diverse points of view.

Her collaborative style of leadership and management bodes well for developing positive relationships and productive team building. Vyda enters the position with a sound core of Unitarian Universalist knowledge and a deep commitment to the UU movement in Canada, evidenced by her consistent participation in UU and CUC affairs. Her experiences both within our movement and in other non-profit environments amply demonstrate her leadership capabilities.

Vyda will start work on May 14 and will be at the Spiritual Leadership Symposium in Ottawa from May 18-20.

    • Knowing Vyda through the Lay Chaplaincy Committee, and knowing Nora for her sound judgment, I also feel confident that Vyda will do well in the 2 year commitment, and hopeful that she will stay on as ED. ‘

    my first thoughts were, “Hooray!” and, “I hope that Vyda will stay
    as our Executive Director far beyond two years.”
