Long-time Vernon resident Marg Bailey has been appointed to the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation board.
Bailey was in senior management at Vernon city hall for many years and has served on the foundation Charity Golf Classic organizing committee for the past four years and the personnel committee for three years.
“Marg offers a wealth of experience in organizational management. She has a clear understanding of communications and staff relations, which will be of great value to VJH Foundation,” said Sue Beaudry, VJH Foundation director of development.
Bailey takes over from Dalvir Nahal, who now sits on Vernon city council.
Nahal was acknowledged for her six years of service and fundraising efforts for the Tower of Care Campaign Phase I, the McMurtry-Baerg Cancer Centre and the digital mammography Campaign.
This year, the foundation will continue to focus on completing the $2.5 million Building of Tower of Care Campaign, Phase II, to equip and furnish the sixth and seventh floors of the Polson Tower.
