Board of Directors

We would like to acknowledge the time and commitment to downtown that our volunteer board of directors provides. We would not be able to do the work we do without them! 

Our board operates under a governance board model. Our operations are guided and managed by our Executive Director.

Executive Director:

Sherry Yonkman

Sherry moved to Williams Lake with her husband and two young children in 2008. She has been a very active volunteer in the community, whether as a coach, team mom, board member or just as an extra set of helping hands. She believes strongly in supporting local businesses and organizations, and was very excited to join Downtown Williams Lake BIA. With her kids now grown, Sherry has more time for exploring the beautiful lakes, trails and golf courses that the Cariboo offers.
