Ontario East Update from President Chris King
Ontario East Economic Development Commission will continue to operate using our team's home-based offices. We are here to provide support and assistance to any members with questions on how to best support your community during these challenging times. Our association and government partners are providing continual updates and resources to Ontario East businesses and we have been approached by several to support their efforts to keep our stakeholders informed on various initiatives, so we will continue to provide e-news when appropriate.
We will make a decision on our
Quarterly Meeting (scheduled for April 24 in Perth) in early April, although it is likely it will be postponed. The board of directors meeting scheduled for around this time will proceed using virtual technology, if necessary.
Our search for an executive director has been postponed and will be reviewed later this year. We will maintain the status quo for the foreseeable future and appreciate the efforts of our staff team during this time.
March 31, 2020 represents Ontario East's fiscal year-end and we will be preparing and distributing our annual membership invoices in early April. We realize that there are many priorities and challenges for our members and understand if there are delays in processing payments. We appreciate your continued support and look forward to working with you all throughout and after we exit the current situation.
if you have any questions about Ontario East.
On behalf of the Ontario East Board of Directors
President Ontario East
CEO, Quinte Economic Development Commission
