Directors needed for Shuswap Economic Development Society Board

Tuesday, June 16, 2020

The Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) is looking for residents of Electoral Areas C, D, and F who want to help our region thrive. If that interests you, the CSRD is seeking potential candidates for the board of directors for the newly formed Shuswap Economic Development Society (SEDS).

The Shuswap Economic Development Society was incorporated to undertake economic development planning and provide services for the benefit of the residents of Electoral Areas C (South Shuswap), D (Falkland, Salmon Valley, Ranchero, Deep Creek) and F (North Shuswap).

The economic development services will address such matters as business attraction, retention and expansion. Services will be designed to encourage job creation, create a sustainable and diverse industrial, commercial, and agricultural tax base and promote a strong economic future for the communities involved.

The SEDS Board of Directors will consist of no fewer than six members and no more than 12 voting directors. Directors will be drawn from a wide variety of personal and professional backgrounds. Our desire is also to ensure fair and balanced representation from across the three Electoral Areas.

We are hoping to recruit and select the inaugural SEDS Board of Directors by early Fall 2020, with the expectation that the society will enter into a service agreement with the CSRD and be ready to provide economic development services by early 2021.

If you are interested in serving on the Shuswap Economic Development Society Board of Directors, please make your interest known by reading the information and filling out the online SEDS Expression of Interest form here.

The deadline to receive Expressions of Interest forms is July 31, 2020.
