Terri LeRoux has been the Executive Director of the Credit Valley Conservation Foundation (CVCF) since July 2005.
In this capacity, Terri works collaboratively with the Board of Directors ensuring that financial support from CVCF permits Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) to make continuous progress towards the achievement of its mission.
Specifically, Terri formulates and executes comprehensive fund development strategies that enhance revenue from major donors, foundations, government agencies, and corporations.
Personally obsessed with Ontario’s trail network, Terri has been an active relationship builder, leader and strategist with organizations such as Hike Ontario, National Trails Coalition and the Ontario Trails Council. In her role with CVCF / CVC, she led a successful ten year campaign that raised more than $2 million dollars and constructed 10 kilometers of fully accessible perimeter lake side trail at Island Lake Conservation Area.
Joey Schwartz is the Advocacy Director for the Toronto Bicycling Network (TBN), the largest recreational cycling club in the GTA. He’s also a CAN-BIKE instructor teaching at various locations throughout the GTA.
He was on the founding committee of the West Toronto Railpath, when it was a sub-committee of the Roncesvalles–MacDonell Residents’ Association back in 1997.
He’s also been active with the Bells on Bloor campaign and with Advocacy for Respect for Cyclists (ARC), mostly helping out on the memorial Ghost Bike Rides they sponsor about a week after a cyclist is killed in Toronto.
