Hope welcomes new director

Donna Bellingham now overseas corporate services at district hall

The District of Hope has hired a new corporate services director.

Donna Bellingham took over the position on Tuesday, filling the vacancy left by Karla Campbell earlier this year.

“I’m looking forward to getting to know the organization and the community as a whole,” said Bellingham.

“Right now it’s getting to know what’s in place in the organization and what’s working for them and building on it. It’s also really getting to know mayor and council and finding out what their vision is, where they want to go and how we as staff can work together to accomplish what their needs are and what their vision is for the community.”

Born and raised in Vancouver, Bellingham moved to the South Cariboo in 1984 and has called 100 Mile House her home since then.

She worked in banking, real estate bookkeeping, and conveyancing before starting her career in local government in 1998.

Bellingham was hired by the District of 100 Mile House in 2001 and obtained her municipal administration training institute certification followed by her local government administration certification through Capilano College in 2006.
