Okanagan College Media Release

Silvestrone and Barranoik June 2015Okanagan College’s Director of Continuing Studies and Corporate Development, Dr. Dennis Silvestrone, was honoured by the Canadian Institute of Management (CIM) on June 5 for his commitment to the Winnipeg Branch of the organization.

Silvestrone worked at the University of Manitoba before coming to Okanagan College and was very active in promotion and development of CIM members while he was there.

“The award recognizes individuals who contribute to our success as an organization and Dr. Silvestrone had a role to play in serving our members in Winnipeg,” explains 

Wilfred Barranoik, a former west/central region president with CIM and current chapter membership director for British Columbia and the Yukon. 

He presented the PRAISE – Performance Recognition for Achievement, Innovation, Service and Excellence – award on behalf of the Winnipeg chapter’s Louise Doberstein, vice-president of membership and board of directors. Winnipeg boasts having the largest CIM chapter in the country.

“I’m honoured by the recognition,” says Silvestrone. “I enjoyed working with CIM and helping the membership. I look forward to a continuing connection with CIM here in the Okanagan as well.”
