Changes at Delta Gymnastics Society

Ana Arciniega to become group's new Executive Director

Ana Arciniega

Delta Gymnastics Society is seeing some change.

The organization’s current Executive Director, Mark Friesen, will be leaving the society to pursue a Master’s program in Urban Studies at SFU this fall.

Filling the vacancy will be Ana Arciniega, who, for the past six years has served as Executive Director of the Tsawwassen Business Improvement Association, as well as assisting several community groups and associations in communications, event planning, and fundraising.

Delta Gymnastics Society officials said Friesen’s departure was sad news.

“Mark has been an invaluable resource to us over the past five years and has brought our club to a new level in this new facility,” stated a press release. “Mark has built on our historical mission with his vision and passion to make gymnastics a ‘sport for all’ and a foundation of physical literacy for children to be able to pursue any sport they choose in their future.”

The society added that the addition of Arciniega is well known to the organization after being involved in various events such as Operation Red Nose, the Kid’s First Campaign, and the recent Barefoot Ball.

“She has extensive experience in project management, a positive and energetic personality, and is passionate for moving DGS forward into its next stage,” stated the society.
Arciniega’s first day on the job in her new role is Sept.17.
