HNCEA and AWIC are working together to produce short virtual townhalls that focus on specific topics and give local businesses a chance to ask more questions than they would in larger, province-wide webinars and teleconferences.
The first one will be held over Zoom next Tuesday, the 23rd from 10 to 11 AM. There is also a dial-in option for those who do not have internet.
This first townhall will give local tourism and related service sector businesses, such as restaurant owners, an opportunity to learn, ask questions and voice their concerns. The town hall will focus on the human side of reopening, such as consumer sentiment and how to attract customers back while making them feel safe.
