Meet Our Board Of Directors

The Community Futures Lac La Biche team is powered by its Board of Directors. Our board members really care about the community and understand the challenges of owning a business. Meet our Board of Directors:


Dave Phillips

Chair - Appointed -  IRC Committee
Lac La Biche & District Chamber of Commerce

As a past Councillor for Lac La Biche County, the past President of the Lac La Biche Pow Wow and Fish Derby Association and current Chair for several other local organizations including the Lac La Biche & District Chamber of Commerce Dave is more than familiar with local business, history and dynamics and brings a unique perspective.  As a long-time resident and self-employed business person with a passion for his community he enjoys giving back to the community that he loves.


Doug Stewart

Vice Chair - Member at Large
Lac La Biche

In the past RCDC (Community Futures Lac La Biche) helped me start and finance my business ventures, and since then I’ve wanted to give back to the community.   I am proud to be part of an organization that has been responsible for so much positive change in our community and happy to lend my considerable knowledge of the local history and dynamics to affect that change.            


Rick Skyrpan

Secretary/Treasurer - Member at Large - IRC Committee
Lac La Biche

As a business owner myself I see the value of the work that is done at Community Futures to help support and grow entrepreneurs in our region.  I believe that partnerships to both promote and support business growth in our region are fundamental for our success. I look forward to contributing more to this organization and the future of our region.


Peter Cardinal

Director - Member at Large
Kikino Metis Settlement

I have spent most of my adult life working in the Oil industry in Alberta. In 2010, I left that industry and started to pursue my passion of trying to help our Aboriginal communities participate in the Alberta and Federal economies.

As a local entrepreneur, I was aware of the many business opportunities available to people in our Region, however as an Aboriginal person I knew there were a few barriers for our people to overcome to participate within the local economy. When I found out that Community Futures had the ability to help our local people access capital to start new businesses, I was more than interested to join the Board of Directors and start helping promote business development in our Aboriginal communities. Having Community Futures help bridge that gap for our people needing access to Capital is critical to the future business startup for many in our Region. Being able to participate with an awesome group like the Lac La Biche Community Futures will enable me to help fulfill my lifelong dream of helping our Aboriginal people pursue and hopefully achieve economic self sufficiency for our entrepreneurs.


Charlyn Moore

Charlyn Moore is a qualified real estate professional with deep ties to the local community. Besides being a sitting County Councillor for Ward 5, she is an avid supporter and former representative of the Lac La Biche & District Chamber of Commerce, Little Sprouts Daycare, and the Lac La Biche Regional Humane Society (to name a few). She has a strong commitment to giving back to the Community and supports Community Futures in its efforts to do the same.

John Mondal

Director - Appointed
Lac La Biche County
