Andru McCracken got to know the transformative power of Community Futures in 2001, when he went through the self-employment benefit program while starting an independent newspaper in Valemount. In 2007 he started working at Valemount’s independent community television station and helped transform its content and its technology. In 2011 he was elected Mayor of Valemount and used his position to empower his community to move forward. He has worked as a communication consultant for Valemount Glacier Destinations Resort Limited, and takes no small amount of pride in the province’s recent approval of its Master Plan. McCracken is a student of high functioning volunteer boards. He loves meetings that tap the potential of directors. He loves strategizing to solve seemingly impossible problems (currently: how to have an amazing career without leaving Valemount). In 2016 he and his wife built a Passive Home on a quiet residential street in Valemount and recently had their first child. Currently McCracken is founding Valemount Magazine. He is a professional photographer, a very busy father and husband of an enterprising newspaper owner. McCracken believes that entrepreneurialism is a key ingredient in creating thriving communities and is honoured to serve on Community Futures British Columbia.

Rebecca is passionate about education, supporting the local economy, and citizen engagement. She also has mischievous twin boys who continuously challenge everything she thinks she knows.
