The guest speaker will be UNBC’S Don Manson, the Coordinator of the Community Development Institute which focuses on community capacity and community development issues.
His presentation tonight will also focus on answering what is community development and how to meet development opportunities and challenges.
It will also deal with getting ahead of the resource development curve, and offer examples of successful resource development policy in BC.
