The Winnipeg Blue Bombers' board of directors is undergoing some changes this December.

Gene Dunn, Deborah Metcalfe (board treasurer) and Jeff Thompson are retiring from the board in a move that is part of the scheduled retirement of all directors.

Trevor Kennerd, a kicker for the Bombers for 12 years, is stepping away from the board in order to help with hosting duties for Winnipeg’s Grey Cup festival in 2015.

The four new members are: Chris Lorenc, the president of the Manitoba Heavy Construction Association; Jamie Wilson, commissioner of the Treaty Relations Commission of Manitoba; Dayna Spring with the Canada Wheat Board; and Bill Baines, president and CEO of AML Wireless Networks.

Regular season ticket holders have until Dec. 15 to snag tickets for the 2015 season.
