Community Futures annual meeting Friday

  • Feb. 18, 2004 5:00 a.m.

Haida Gwaii Community Futures is holding its annual general meeting Friday, and general manager Art Lew says the public is welcome to attend.
The board will be welcoming new directors Vince Collison and Gary Russ, both representing the Council of the Haida Nation. They will also appoint their auditors, and Mr. Lew will speak about the organization’s accomplishments over the past year.
These include working with NorthWest Community College to bring a 10-month social work certificate program to the islands (22 people currently enrolled), working with Old Massett social development to secure funding for a community learning project, putting on the annual wood trade show, working with the youth society, preparing for another all-islands symposium to follow-up last year’s event, and working with the Mount Moresby Adventure Camp on Moresby Island.
Community Futures also runs career development centres in Masset and Queen Charlotte, and offers business loans and counselling.
The annual general meeting will be held Friday (Feb. 20) at 1 pm in the Masset office board room, in the old Skills Centre building. Mr. Lew said the public will have an opportunity to ask questions and talk to directors.
