The Board

The Cliff Bungalow-Mission Community Association exists to provide leadership, support and resources to protect and enhance the unique and diverse natural, architectural, historic and social environment of the community.


We currently have vacancies on the board. Contact us if you are interested in joining or volunteering. 

Bob Lang



Bob has been a part of the Cliff Bungalow-Mission CA for over 35 years. He first got involved because of a proposed development that had immediate impact on him. He says he has remained involved for so many years because he is still able to contribute to the vitality of the community, enjoys it, and is very proud of where he lives. Bob has played a key role in many exciting initiatives not only in his community but also throughout Calgary. One of the most notable being founding the popular Lilac Festival as a way to showcase and bring awareness to one of the city’s oldest communities.

Rob Jobst

Planning and Development Director


Rob likes to remind people he was born in Mission. After growing up in the ‘burbs, Rob moved back to Mission, living for 12 years above a restaurant in a 1912-vintage apartment building on 4th Street. Deciding he needed to upgrade to a more modern place, Rob moved in 2003 to The Laurence, a 1929 heritage apartment block in Cliff Bungalow. Rob has volunteered with CBMCA for about 20 years, sitting on the Planning & Development Committee and serving as its director from 2003 to 2006, as well as designing the Mission Statement for several years. Rob is once again on the board with a mandate to champion the community’s best interests in negotiations with developers and the City as well as effectively communicating the details of the committee’s efforts to residents.

Shannon MacLeod



Shannon has lived in the Cliff Bungalow/Mission neighbourhood since 2013 and has been a board member since 2017.  She took on the role of Environment Director because she feels strongly about promoting and preserving the wonderful outdoor spaces this neighborhood has to offer.


In her spare time, you can find her riding horses on her family’s ranch, riding bikes in the mountains, or enjoying late night eats at one of the many amazing restaurants 4th Street has to offer!

His contributions and activities as a Director-at-Large on the board are as varied as the events where extra hands or an accredited bartender are needed.

Lucy first moved to Mission in 2002 and watched the area evolve and change in so many ways. She joined the Cliff-Bungalow to contribute back to the community she has enjoyed for so many years.
