When the Lighthouse Country Business Association (LCBA) hosts its annual general meeting on Thursday, March 15, attendees will likely be heard commenting on the social and educational aspects of the evening as on business issues.
President Patrick Jiggins points out that with the rapidly growing economy in Lighthouse Country, local business folk are so busy tending to their businesses that getting everyone together is becoming more difficult.
“Lighthouse Country is the fastest-growing area in the entire region, and our association reflects that growth.” Jiggins said. “We now have around 150 members so when we can get everyone together, we want to make it a special evening.”
The AGM will be held at Arrowsmith Golf & Country Club at 2250 Fowler Rd. The evening begins with a reception, networking, and Table Top Showcase at 5:30 pm., followed by dinner, guest speakers and the AGM. There will also be draws, 50/50, and showcase tables. Special guest speaker for the evening is Joan Miller, film commissioner with Vancouver Island North Film Commission (InFilm). She will give an update on the film industry in the region and talk about what the business community in Lighthouse Country can do to be “film ready.”
Members are invited to bring guests and memberships will be renewed or sold at the door. Tickets are $33 (includes tax and gratuity) and must be reserved by March 9. To book your tickets, call Lori at 250-228-0223 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
