Quarterly Update of Staff Events
This period we have had the opportunity to attend several events to share ideas and build knowledge throughout our region to promote economic development. A few of our staff events included:
- We hosted our AGM at the newly opened Chedabucto Lifestyle Complex in Guysborough. Guest Speaker, Steve Smith, CEO of Capital Nova Inc. shared his career beginnings and successes by thinking regionally while engaging in partnerships to benefit local communities.
- On August 1st, Premier Stephen McNeil was present as we launched our Connector Program for the Eastern-Strait REN. A first step to community retention of “Connectees” (recent graduate, new Canadians or boomerangers).
- We attended the Partners for Progress conference in Digby. A conference attended by the Provincial Regional Enterprise Network staff and partners to showcase the work of the REN’s.
- Discussions were centered around challenges to economic prosperity in rural Nova Scotian communities and solutions were shared among all.
- Our staff volunteered time during the National Special Olympics hosted by Antigonish Town and County.
