Yvonne joined "Burnaby Chorus" [now Westcoast Harmony] Sweet Adelines in 1986. Affectionately nick-named "Y-von" it slowly evolved to "Y" and always starts a conversation. Y's involvement in chorus and regional life has always centered around marketing and organization. She willingly participated in many years of Chorus Team work (Operations, History, PR & Marketing, Costuming and Committees). For years you will have seen Y as your Internationally appointed Competition Coordinator and prior to that on the Steering Committee in several other positions. Y was very happy to serve as Marketing Coordinator for the Region from 2010 until 2017 and welcomes the opportunity to work with all of you in a new role as Regional Membership Director in the Pilot Program! First Idea… this is Canada’s 150th, let’s increase regional membership by 150 in 2017!
