FREDERICTON (GNB) – The provincial government has announced the appointment of two new members to the board of directors of Service New Brunswick.

“I would like to welcome these new members to the board,” said Service New Brunswick Minister Sherry Wilson. “I feel that both of these individuals are bringing with them a wealth of knowledge and expertise that will be extremely beneficial to the organization. I would also like to thank the outgoing board members for their excellent work during their terms.”
