The Gumboot Nation in association with the Roberts Creek Community Association presents: “Area Representation, What to Expect as a Director, What Can You Expect from Your Director.” 

If you have wondered what it takes to be an SCRD director or what you can expect them to do for us, this is your chance to ask all the questions. The Gumboot Nation and RCCA has gathered Area D (Roberts Creek) SCRD current and former directors Shugar, Lebbell and Tize together to answer questions put forward by you.  

Submit your questions to and myself and my co-moderators will sort and pose the questions to our former and current directors, in a friendly, informative way, so we can all walk away with more insight to what it takes to represent this great community.  

The list of questions will be supplied to our panel to allow them to prepare their best answer and I encourage any and all to attend Roberts Creek Hall, Tuesday June 14 at 7 p.m. to get knowledge on what it takes to be an SCRD director and/or deal with your representative on the SCRD board to get the most from our interactions with our local government. As Andreas is stepping down, we need someone with the entire community in their heart and mind to step up at this crucial time. This event will help whomever runs to enter the race with their eyes open for the best chance at a successful term in this often thankless, but important, job.
