“I want to thank the board for their trust, support and belief in me,” Ewaskiw said at the town hall meeting. “I would also like to thank Director Ted Paszek for his mentorship and leadership over the past four years as Chairman of the Board.”

Paszek has served as Chairman of the EICS Board of Directors for the past four years.
