City looking to put in place Nanaimo Prosperity Corporation’s inaugural board

Members-at-large sought to help guide economic development corporation

The City of Nanaimo is setting up its new Nanaimo Prosperity Corporation and is looking for people interested in being part of the corporation’s inaugural board.

The economic development corporation’s board will have representatives from the city, Snuneymuxw First Nation, Nanaimo Airport Commission, Greater Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce, Nanaimo Port Authority and Vancouver Island University. Three members-at-large will round out the board and the city noted in a press release that it hopes people “with an interest in the shared prosperity of the community” will put their names forward.

Some of the initial work of the corporation will be to work on implementing the recommendations of the city’s economic development strategy, working on initiatives to attract and retain businesses and employers, and more, noted the release.

“Council is excited to see the launch of the Nanaimo Prosperity Corporation and the shared benefits it will bring to our community,” said Mayor Leonard Krog in the release.

The city anticipates that the prosperity corporation will hold its inaugural meeting this spring and will then proceed with recruiting an executive director and advancing other aspects of the work plan.
