BC Ideas Exchange Story Showcase: Workforce and Resident Attraction Strategies

Thursday, September 12, 2019,  10:00 - 11:00 am, PDT

Do you live in a beautiful, unique spot in B.C.? Or maybe your community has a budding industry or development opportunity and you’re finding it hard to get the word out there or to attract new entrepreneurs, specialized workers and families? Each community has assets and lifestyle options that make them attractive places to live and work, but without effective attraction strategies, potential newcomers and investors may miss them.  

The BC Ideas Exchange Story Showcase brings creative examples of campaigns that have brought in new residents and investments to regional communities. Tune in to this webinar to learn what worked and what didn’t, ask questions and get some ideas for your own community’s strategy. 

Speakers:  Randy Morse, Communications Director with BC Rural Centre and Terry Van Horn, Executive Director of Lower Columbia Initiatives and Metal Tech Alley
