GOOD NEWS COMING!

Last Friday I took part in a tele-townhall with Minister Lisa MacLeod of the Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries. I learned that the Minister will be announcing a different funding package each day this week, geared toward supporting the hardest-hit areas in her portfolio.

I know I’m not the only one hoping for some good news for these long-suffering segments.

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT NEWS

The Municipality has selected The Planning Partnership to assist in gathering public input for its Downtown Markdale Revisioning project. Community engagement will start soon. Please get involved!

REMINDER: NEXT CHAMBER BOARD MEETING

The Chamber Board will meet next on Mar. 18 via Zoom. A link has been sent out to invite all Chamber Members to watch our meeting live. At the start of this meeting we will have a guest speaker proposing a new Chamber initiative – be among the first to know about it!

MARCH NETWORKING

Our next Chamber Member Networking Sessions is scheduled for Mar. 20, 9:00-9:45am.
A maximum of 10 Members will each have four minutes to leisurely introduce themselves and their business to the rest of the group, and field questions. And we’ll be throwing in a little something to get you interacting with each other.

Members can make powerful connections during this 45 minutes, so call or email the Chamber Office for the Zoom link.
