David PaynterDavid Paynter - President

David has been happily married to Laurie for 37 years; they have 2 kids, Lisa 35 and Aaron 32; and two wonderful grandkids, Eloise and Oliver, who are 7 and 4. They formed a Microboard for Aaron thirteen years ago when he finished high school and according to David and Laurie it was one of the best decisions they ever made.
 
David has been involved with Kelowna and District Society for Community Living and BCACL. He has been involved with a local parent support group for 30 years, Family Support Institute for 22 years and Plan Okanagan. Through these organizations he has made many close friends and we believe improved not only Aaron’s life, but the lives of many others as well. David’s favourite advice to everyone... take up dancing!
