Anju Gill, executive director, BC Blueberry Council

The BC Blueberry Council has announced that Anju Gill is now serving as executive director of the 700-member association.  Her 12 years of experience in government and public relations along with education uniquely position her in supporting the diverse growing needs of the highbush blueberry industry.  She has a BA in Social Cultural and Media & Communication Studies and MA in Political Science.

 In her past positions, she worked closely with diverse stakeholders and all levels of government on public policy matters. This included assessing the needs of constituents and operationalizing public policy.  In addition, as a community relations organizer for a national political party, she established committees and working groups to engage and address issues that impact diverse groups.
