Community Futures (CF) Sunrise will be hosting an interactive and practical workshop series for communities in the southeast Saskatchewan region, called
Business Retention and Expansion: Helping Your Community Thrive.
Facilitated by the economic development professionals at EDCD Consulting, these sessions will happen in March and promise to help communities discover and address the challenges faced by their business sectors, set the stage for economic resilience and growth, and create a plan to retain and expand their local business community.
In a news release, CF Sunrise said all communities want a healthy and vibrant local economy. Setting the stage for that thriving business sector can be achieved with creative ideas, hard work, community support and a little help from “those in the know” about economic development.
“If you are a municipal leader, operate a small business, or just care about your community and want to see it thrive, you won’t want to miss out on this fantastic learning opportunity,” CF Sunrise said in a news release.
The knowledge and tools you gain can be used to make positive changes and further support your own local business community.
The online sessions will take place on March 16, 23 and 30 from 1:30-4:30 p.m. Space is limited for this three-part workshop series and pre-registration is required.
The session fee of $30 will provides you with access to the full workshop, along with all materials and a customized business retention and expansion template.
