CFGT Announces NEW NAME CHANGE!
Thank you to all our local government representatives, community partners, clients, and business community for attending our Open House, last Wednesday evening. It was a great kick-off to the holiday season, sampling delicious food and beverages prepared by local vendors, and it proved to be an excellent opportunity for networking with business minded individuals to forge new partnerships.
Community Futures Greater Trail also announced their name change to Community Futures South Kootenay. “We’re proud to adopt a new name that is more representative of the region we serve,” stated the organization’s Board of Directors member Wayne Kelly. “South Kootenay better defines our catchment area that includes Rossland, Warfield, Trail, Montrose, Fruitvale, and areas A and B of the Kootenay Boundary Regional District. It’s inclusive and recognizes all the cities, towns and villages that our office serves”.
Our new name also aligns well with our network’s offices in Nelson and Cranbrook, respectively called Community Futures Central Kootenay and Community Futures East Kootenay. We expect this re-branding to help attract more entrepreneurs to reach out for our free business supports”, states Executive Director Erik Kalacis. “We look forward to expanding our services to more businesses and local entrepreneurs in our region.”
From the entire team at Community Futures South Kootenay, we wish you and yours a very joyous holiday season!
