She served as President of UCPBA Calgary; he was President of UCPBA Edmonton. Truly UCPBA royalty! We are particularly proud to announce that in recognition of their many contributions to the Ukrainian community, Oksana and Oleh Hnatiuk will be receiving the UCPBA Lifetime Achievement Award at our 2015 AGM June 25th.
Oksana, a founding member of the Advisory Council on Alberta-Ukraine Relations established by the Government of Alberta, is also a former president of the Ukrainian Canadian Committee, Calgary Branch. During her tenure, she succeeded in getting all Ukrainian organizations in Calgary to work together to stage the largest production that the community has ever undertaken – Glorious and Free – an accomplishment of which she is particularly proud.
Oleh, a former president of the Ukrainian Canadian Students’ Union SUSK at U of A, extended the scope of his community involvement to the international arena. As a venture capitalist, he was able to contribute his expertise to the development of Ukraine’s investment industry in the early days of the country’s independence.
Together and separately, Oleh and Oksana have had a profound impact on the Ukrainian community locally, nationally and internationally. We salute them!
