Nelson Police Board Director Hilda Taylor
Appointed June 22, 2012
Hilda Taylor has lived in the City of Nelson for the past ten years. She currently is employed as Branch Manager, Kootenay Insurance Services Ltd. Recently she has served as negotiator on behalf of Kootenay Insurance Services management in collective bargaining.
Hilda has twenty years of experience as an insurance broker working throughout various parts of the Province, Terrace, Kelowna and the Kootenays. Prior to her move to Canada in 1978, she lived in the Republic of Ireland. She worked for Meath County Council first as a clerical officer, then assistant staff officer and finally, town clerk of a small municipality. Her education and experience while living in Ireland gave her a good grounding in legal procedure and legislation. She lived there during a time of political upheaval, an experience that made her more keenly aware of the tragic consequences of the breakdown of political systems.
Hilda is an active volunteer in the communities in which she lives. She was a secretary of Kelowna Minor Hockey, volunteered for many soccer and hockey teams through the years and she is currently serving as Director of Granite Pointe Golf Club. She is deeply interested in and committed to the well-being of the community of Nelson.
