Ronald (Ron) J. Kruzeniski was appointed as Chair of CNIB’s National Board of Directors for a two-year term at the Annual General Meeting held on Saturday, September 10 in Toronto.

Ron has served on CNIB’s National Board since 2013. He is a lawyer, admitted to the Bar in 1973 and worked in private practice for 16 years. From 1983 to 1989, Ron served as the Chair of the Human Rights Commission, and also worked as the Assistant Deputy Minister of Labour and was appointed Public Guardian and Trustee.

“I am honoured to be appointed Chair of the National Board of Directors, and am very excited about the future when I look at the challenges and opportunities facing the organization,” Kruzeniski said. “CNIB is looking forward to a great deal of change which, when it occurs, will better allow us to continue to serve Canadians who are blind and partially sighted.”
