Business after Hours at Patch Java May 4th 5:30 pm


Join the Fort St John & District Chamber of Commerce at their ‘business after hours’ at Patch Java Coffee House on May 4th, 2011 5:30 pm.
Have you ever thought about how ‘social medias’ such as twitter can affect local governments? Social media tools such as Twitter and Facebook are placing local government officials under greater scrutiny than ever before combined  with a public desire for more services but with no tax increases and you have the recipe for an extremely challenging environment for both elected and appointed officials alike.
This is just one of the issues facing local governments; Join us with guest speaker Tom MacDonald, Executive Director, Local Government Management Association of BC, as he discusses the top 10 issues facing BC local governments in 2011 and the role of local government administrators.
This presentation will be of interest to anyone with an interest in local government including those considering running for office in the November local general elections.
Call the Chamber office 250.785.6037 to RSVP for this presentation.
