Communications and Program Coordinator
Richard Rolke comes to the Chamber of Commerce after a lengthy career in the local media, with a focus on local government, business, First Nations and the community. Born in the Okanagan, Richard resides in Coldstream and has been extremely active in the North Okanagan community, including with the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation and the North Okanagan Community Life Society. Richard not only knows people virtually everywhere he goes, but he has an extensive knowledge of the history of the region, and he brings that passion for the North Okanagan to the Chamber. He is also excited about using his communications skills to further the relationship between the Chamber and its business and non-profit members, and to advocate on their behalf.
