The EDC is a committee appointed by Council to advise on all things economic on Bowen– but we also really dig in and like to get things done! In addition to committee responsibilities such as attending monthly meetings in person and completing actions generated from such, EDC members work on subcommittees such as the “Business Licensing Task Force” and the “Business Retention and Expansion Subcommittee”.
The qualities we are looking for in our volunteers include:
- Willingness to put in time on projects and working groups in addition to monthly EDC meetings
- Willingness to take leadership roles and be creative in solving community issues
- Specific areas of experience that will contribute to a range of skills and interests within the group such as business, economics, research and analysis, sustainability, community building, graphic design, marketing, writing, etc.
If you are interested in joining the EDC “work party”, please download an application form from and submit it to Stef Shortt, EDC Liaison at firstname.lastname@example.org or drop it off at Municipal Hall. Submission deadline is Monday, April 2nd at 4:30pm, 2018.
