Agenda of the September 6th Meeting:
5:00 – Meet and greet
5:30pm – Danielle Duncan welcome presentation
5:40 – Guest speaker: Darcy Lefebvre local marketing and communication strategist as well as the co-owner of Aboutcomoxvalley.com. Darcy will offer a short presentation on aboutcomoxvalley.com (a free tourism and hospitality directory) and will introduce a brand new section dedicated to the Courtenay downtown. Darcy will demonstrate how a downtown business can use the site to promote themselves and the downtown area using the sites free tools!
We have met with many others in the downtown community and the general consensus is there is no cohesiveness in the town. Many of us don’t know each other or what each other offers, this is something that we can easily change!
As part of our weekly Thursday Neighbourhood night initiative we would like to dedicate the first Thursday of every month to the downtown business community. During this time we would like to get to know each other more and build relationships, in the hope that we can put together some ideas on how to start working as a community, in order to draw more attention to the downtown.
“Let’s work together to make the pie bigger, not get a bigger piece of the pie.”
