October 6, 2010, New York, NY – The Episcopal Church Foundation’s (ECF) board of directors voted to elect three new directors: Judith Gaillard Jones, of Pacific Palisades, CA; Mark A. Jones, of Decatur, GA; and David S. Wasik, of Richmond, VA.
“ECF’s board is delighted to welcome these new directors, with their diverse experiences and abiding faith, to the family,” remarked Sally A. Skardon., ECF’s chairperson. “They possess a variety of talents and skills, and a deep dedication to the future of the Episcopal Church.”
Judith Gaillard Jones served as a trustee of Wellesley College and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and as a director of KCET, Public Television for Southern California and Planned Parenthood/Los Angeles. She is a member of St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church in Pacific Palisades, where she was a vestry member and Co-Chair of the Finance Committee, is a Trustee of Episcopal Theological School at Claremont University, previously was a Trustee of the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles Investment Trust, and was named Honorary Lay Canon to the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles. Joining the ECF board will be a natural extension of Judy’s work on the DIT and the board of the Episcopal Theological School.
Mark A. Jones was Executive Vice President at INVESCO Retirement, Inc. for more than ten years and has deep experience in investment services. He is currently Chair of the Board of Directors for Crossroads Community Ministries, which serves the homeless of Atlanta. Mark has been a member of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Atlanta since 1973, and is a Trustee of the St. Luke’s Endowment. One of Mark’s biggest concerns is that the Episcopal Church remains vital and relevant for future generations and he is looking forward to working to help ECF focus on its mission.
David S. Wasik is a Senior Vice President for Capital One Financial Corporation where he has worked since 1993. David is a member of Christ Church in Glen Allen, VA and has been active as a Vestry member, has served as Treasurer, is a member of the Stewardship Committee, and has taught Sunday School. David also serves as a Board Member of Junior Achievement of Central Virginia and often teaches JA programs in area schools. David hopes to help the Episcopal Church continue to be a force for change and is excited to help ECF achieve its goals and strategy.
The three new board members will attend ECF’s next board meeting in New York, NY, October 28 - 30, 2010.
