Director of Operations: Peter KleinBeernink
Peter KleinBeernink has been the director of operations for the Corkery Community Association since 2019. He got involved with the rink clearing in 2017 and, as a result, became interested in helping to put together a rink covering proposal. This proposal, although ultimately not accepted, paved the way for the proposed building upgrade which is underway at the moment. As director of operations, Peter is spearheading this effort.
