New director for chamber board

Diana Wilson joins the Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce

The Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce has bolstered its board membership.

The latest board member is Diana Wilson, who is director of solution delivery at Kal Tire. She was also a director at Sierra Systems and she has been president of the Vernon Paddling Centre for two years.

“I believe we have a lot to look forward to in growing the organization,” said Wilson.

“I’ve been impressed by the work of the chamber and look forward to helping advocate on behalf of our members and local businesses to ensure the North Okanagan maintains a strong economic foundation.”

The Vernon Senior Secondary grad fills one of two spots that remained open on the chamber board since the annual general meeting.

“Her business experience combined with her community work, made her a great fit for the board,” said Jaron Chasca, GVCC president.

“As part of our three-year strategic plan we have been strengthening our board to shape an organization that can better serve our members and add value to the business community and Diana will be an immense help in that effort.”
