Dione joins us from the Fort Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce, where she managed and worked for the past five years.
A community advocate, passionate volunteer and a previous entrepreneur, Dione is eager to learn about the Vernon business climate and bring her previous experience to the Chamber organization.
Out of the box thinking and strategic planning are Dione's strengths and she is looking forward to continuing advocacy work to ensure the Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce continues to be one of the most respected Chambers in the province.

They both have a strong passion for Vernon and stay busy giving back to the community through volunteer work.

He was presented with JCI Canada’s National New Member of the Year Award and was also fortunate to be elected President.
Dan has had the opportunity to meet so many amazing people in Vernon and he’s excited about the opportunity to grow the Chamber’s already strong membership base while also enhancing the events and benefits GVCC provides to its members and the business community. He has a passion for business and is an entrepreneur at heart, most recently winning second place in Community Future's Enterprise challenge.
