About the City's Organizers

  • PechaKucha New West Organizing Committee

    PechaKucha New West was started by Melinda & Neal Michael, but is now organized by a committee of passionate and engaged residents including; Jen Arbo, Erin Jeffery & Stephen O'Shea of the New West Arts Council.

  • Erin Jeffery

    Erin is a talker. An actor by training and a communicator by trade, she has a bit of a thing for language. And she talks. A lot. To just about anyone who will listen. And even those who don't. She is the Special Events Manager at the River Market...the perfect job as it allows her to tell everyone how great New Westminster and the River Market are. When not marketing it up, Erin can be found wrangling her four year old superhero and her incredibly tall husband, playing football, psyching herself up to return to acting, making things, writing for yoyomama.ca, SheBlogs and BLUNTmoms and cooking...most probably with cheese.
