A familiar face is back at the Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce.

Dan Proulx has been hired as the chamber’s membership and marketing coordinator. Proulx served the chamber as membership and events coordinator in 2015.

He will assist in recruiting new members and work with current chamber members on marketing and promotions.

“We are looking forward to welcoming Dan back to the chamber team,” said chamber general manager Dione Chambers. “With his strong relationships with the business community and his knowledge of the chamber of commerce, it can only mean incredible opportunities for the chamber membership.”

Proulx is excited to be returning to the chamber.

“There are a lot of positive thing happening that I am thrilled to build upon and new ideas I can’t wait to share,” he said. “As always, I am focused on bringing value to the memberships.”

In addition to his previous work with the Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce, Proulx was president of JCI Vernon (Junior Chambers International) and has a thorough understanding of the chamber movement and the many benefits available to members.

Jamie Morrow, who was the chamber’s sales and business development manager, has left the organization to take a full time position at Okanagan College.
