Ron Skuggedal

Vice Chair of Board

Ron is President of Viking Construction Ltd (57 years strong) operating out of Prince George and Kitimat. Ron has been a member of the Kinsmen Club of Kitimat for 14 years. As a Kinsmen Ron’s major cause is to raise funds for the Kinsmen foundation of BC to assist as best he can people in need to provide them with a better quality of life. In 2016 Ron was elected by his kinsmen peers to the board of the Kinsmen Foundation. Ron’s goal as a board member is to raise additional funding beyond the KF annual support structure to grow its stand-alone legacy fund with the strength to support those with disabilities well into the future. Ron would say while there are numerous worthwhile charities to support all one can do is ask for your financial support to enhance our cause to help those with difficulties to assist them to attain a feeling of freedom to do more.
