The Royal Canadian Geographical
Society’s long-time lawyer and auditor both received the Camsell
Medal in November for outstanding service. Kenneth Boland and Carman Joynt
have served the RCGS for decades, professionally and as volunteers. Boland,
an expert in non-profit corporations, was its legal counsel from 1990 until
his retirement last summer. Joynt started auditing the Society as a newly
minted chartered accountant in 1974 and did so for 31 years.
Boland served on the Board of Governors and now sits on the Finance and
Audit committees, while Joynt is a member of the Canadian Geographic Enterprises
Management Board and the Board of Trustees of the RCGS Endowment Fund.
