I have found that after just one week as CEO of PADCC, the business community continues to grow and expand to meet the needs of the Prince Albert trading area.
The Chamber responds by recognizing outstanding businesses through our recent Samuel McLeod Business Awards. The impressive list of nominees and category recipients is a testament to the strength of the business community in Prince Albert and the surrounding region. We could not host the awards ceremony without the many corporate sponsors who contribute toward this event each year. The support from our membership and sponsors is never-ending and the Chamber values your commitment.
As we look ahead, the issue of regional planning continues to be an important one. On May 14, the City of Prince Albert is hosting an open house to preview a draft of the Official Community Plan (OCP). The Chamber has participated on the committee responsible for the development of the OCP and fully supports efforts to create an integrated plan to guide the future of Prince Albert. This event will be your opportunity to see the draft and understand the planning efforts. Please plan to attend this event May 14 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the foyer at City Hall.
On May 28, the Chamber is hosting a business luncheon with Troy Cooper, Chief of Police for the Prince Albert Police Service. Tickets for the luncheon are available by calling 306-764-6222 or visiting our website.
We hope you can join us for a very timely and informative presentation by Chief Cooper on “The Economics of Public Safety,” a fundamental part of business success and attraction in growing communities.
Our final “networking” event of this operating year is our annual golf tournament at Marks Nine on Friday June 5th. The “Duffer Classic” is an opportunity to celebrate another year of business success with your colleagues.
