McClellan's Contract Extended

Published: May 10, 2017 09:09 am EDT

The Board of Directors of Horse Racing Alberta (HRA) has extended the employment contract of HRA President & CEO Shirley McClellan to end June 30, 2018.

The new Century Mile Racetrack and Racing Entertainment Centre at the Edmonton International Airport is scheduled to open on July 1, 2018. There is substantial documentation and plans to be completed before the opening. Ms. McClellan has been involved from the start and the HRA Board felt that continuity was most important through to the opening of the Century facility.

In early 2018, the Board of Horse Racing Alberta will create a CEO Search Committee to ensure that a new CEO is in place for a smooth and orderly transition.

Current CEO is needed to ensure the smooth transition from Northlands to Century Mile for confidence in the future of live racing in Alberta, a positive step for present and future stakeholders in the race industry during these difficult times.
