CHW National President, Elayna Latsky
Elayna was born and raised in Montreal, Quebec and speaks both English and French. She holds a Bachelor of Commerce from Concordia University and a Graduate Diploma in Public Accountancy from McGill University. Elayna worked in public accounting in Montreal for several years before moving to Toronto to continue her career.
Elayna and her husband Jonathan have been married for 25 years and have four sons (16, 19, 22, and 24 years old) that keep her on her toes. In her spare time, she enjoys cooking, reading, needlepoint, walking outdoors, and snowshoeing in the winter. Elayna also loves visiting Israel, taking family trips there to experience CHW projects in person.
As she assumes the position of National President, Elayna brings with her volunteer experience from a number of boards and not-for-profit organizations, including The Leo Baeck Day School.
A member and leader within CHW for 23 years, and a past CHW Toronto Centre President, Elayna’s goals during the course of her two year-term, are to implement changes that will move the organization forward in the 21st century, improve our virtual presence, and develop creative strategies and programs that will attract a new generation of supporters to join the CHW family.
“I know that by volunteering and supporting CHW, we are making a positive impact on many lives. It is my honour and privilege to be CHW’s 25th National President. I will do my very best to help us move forward during these challenging times.”
