The FSJ Chamber is participating on a provincial Task Force with the BC Chamber to develop a Regional Playbook regarding all things Covid, business impacts, re-openings, and much more information. This is a provincially funded project.
We are looking for businesses in all sectors, and sizes to participate to ensure a broad cross-section of data and information. We encourage everyone to participate in this project that will benefit all local and regional businesses through Covid recovery. The focus group session will be two hours on February 4, from 11-1pm.
An invitation to participate in the regional focus group and a project backgrounder are both available below. Feel free to share these documents and invitation with your networks, so we are able to get as many participants as possible.
If you have any questions, please call or send me a note.
