The Corner Brook Downtown Business Association will hold its Annual General Meeting and election of officers on May 17th, 7p.m. at Swirsky’s on Broadway. Following the meeting will be an informal reception and open bar.
All member businesses are urged to send representation to the meeting.
Topics to be discussed will include expansion of the business improvement area boundaries, electronic and third-party signage, and downtown beautification initiatives.
“The meeting will be a chance for our members to share their concerns and ideas. As well, it will be a great opportunity to learn about new projects and opportunities that may benefit their business,” said Jim Parsons, Chair of the Board of Directors.
Now, more than ever, it is important for downtown businesses to cooperate and have their voices heard.
“Despite the difficult economic situation, the downtown is undergoing a renaissance. There is a new energy among businesses in the downtown to make subtle, but important improvements to the area, and a willingness to work together to make these things happen.”
For more information on the meeting, please contact Heather Wellman at 638-5423 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
