Melody Martin served the Vernon Women in Business for two years, as Vice President and then President, her term ending when the new Board was elected for September 2018. This non-profit organization is the largest association of business women in Vernon and serves to support and educate as well as to promote networking and the sharing of ideas. Melody is a big believer in the value of local business and of women entrepreneurs and continues her membership in the group now that she is its Past President.
VWIB member Lacy Donald was almost in tears as she spoke of Burko at the awards ceremony.
“Her energy and her kindness, just her positivity, her willingness to do things like donate a kidney, and her service are part of the reason we chose her to receive this award,” said Donald, adding that Burko recruited her to join VWIB, a group that she too is very proud to be a part of.
