Please join me in congratulating Mr. Chris Horbachewski, Vice-President (Advancement) on his appointment as Vice-President, External Relations, at the University of Victoria effective February 1, 2020.

Chris joined the University of Lethbridge as Vice-President (Advancement) in 2005. Chris has been instrumental in the creation of a professional advancement shop at the U of L. Under his leadership the University has raised significant funds for the betterment of our students and campus community. His deft ability to communicate has supported our efforts to guide the university through many challenging times and also to seize many opportunities. He has been a trusted advisor on many issues and I want to sincerely thank him for his efforts.

Chris has informed me that he will continue at the U of L until the end of this calendar year, so we will all be able to congratulate him in person. Work will begin immediately to implement our path forward for the important advancement work that is undertaken at the U of L and we will work with Chris in the months ahead to ensure a smooth transition.

A decision on the position of Vice-President (Advancement) will be made in the months ahead.

Again, please join me in congratulating Chris on his appointment and thanking him for his service to the University of Lethbridge.
