A new task force focused on helping Kitimat businesses weather the economic effects of COVID-19 has put out a call for volunteers.
The District of Kitimat announced its new Coronavirus Economic Recovery Taskforce on April 3 in a call out for volunteers to join the eight-person team.
Specifically the task force is looking for one member of Kitimat’s general, tourism and industrial businesses to step up and join the task force, which is planning its first meeting for the coming weeks. They are subsequently planning to meet once a week, with subsequent recommendations going to the District — specifically the Director of Emergency Operations and Kitimat Chamber of Commerce — for consideration.
The stated goals of the task force are to identify both challenges and opportunities presented by the current pandemic and to identify the appropriate resources or tools to facilitate healthy economic recovery for challenges faced by the business community during the virus’ spread.
This is being done with the intent of “[fostering] a healthy economic recovery” in response to COVID-19.
If you would like to nominate yourself or another member of the business community the team is asking you to submit your nomination by phone or email to the Chamber of Commerce’s executive director Laurel D’Andrea at 250-632-6294 or email@example.com. Nomination are open until April 8 at 4:30 p.m.
