Meet our Board of Directors
Katy Wedgwood - Chaiperson
Katy joined the Winnipeg MFRC Board of Directors in the winter of 2019. She is a military spouse who is very familiar with the relocation process and the positive impact the MFRC can have during this process. Katy, her husband, and her 100+lb puppy are happy to be back in Winnipeg for a second posting.
Volunteering for the Winnipeg MFRC Board of Directors gives me an opportunity to give back to the military community by using the skills and experience that I’ve gained through both my professional life and personal life as a military spouse who has moved multiple times. As a non-profit organization, the MFRC relies on a volunteer Board of Directors to govern the finances, policies, and strategic direction of the centre. Being on the board allows me to have a role in building and enhancing the programs and services that we provide, act as a voice for the military community, and try to make a positive contribution to the organization and the community. - Katy Wedgwood

Katy has served on two other MFRC Boards as a Member at Large (1 year) and as Vice Chairperson (2 years) as well as on the Board of a non-profit patient advocacy group as Secretary (3 years).
