Joyce sm

Joyce enjoyed working in the ice arena field and was a figure skater for many years. She promoted the concept of using ice arenas in the province for more than just venues for renting ice out to user groups which involved the creation of innovative and fun programs. Joyce promoted gender equity and tried to encourage more females to become involved with the RFABC and the ice arena industry. She led by example and was involved with the technical aspects of recreation facilities and in establishing the Ice Facility Operator designation.
