Economic Partnership Initiative Committee Open House
Community members are invited to an open house hosted by Whistler’s council-appointed Economic Partnership Initiative (EPI) Committee:
WHEN: Wednesday, June 26, 2013, 4:30 to 7:00 p.m.
WHERE: Delta Whistler Village Suites (4308 Main Street)
The open house will include:
- A presentation by EPI Committee representatives
- A gallery walk with display information
- Opportunities to meet staff and committee members
- Opportunities to submit feedback
Updates about the work conducted by the EPI committee over the last 10 months will be presented, and community members will be able to provide input on the EPI Committee’s preliminary findings and draft recommendations about key focus areas for ensuring and supporting ongoing economic success across the community.
Input from the open house will be considered by the committee, as they move forward with the development of a summary report, which is expected to be completed in the fall.
The EPI Committee was formed to expand the former Resort Municipality Initiative (RMI) Oversight Committee’s role to include a broader economic planning mandate. This committee includes representatives from Tourism Whistler, Whistler Blackcomb, the Whistler Chamber of Commerce, the Hotel Association of Whistler, the Resort Municipality of Whistler, and the community. The EPI committee’s goals are to grow the resort economy, build confidence in the resort economy, and encourage reinvestment.
