No rest for senior city official
Charlottetown’s economic development officer is a busy man these days.
Ron Atkinson is participating with the provincewide municipal working group on newcomer retention and presented to the group at the last meeting in Montague.
He also took part in the Atlantic Canada Economic Coalition, which involves economic development representatives from the seven largest Atlantic Canadian cities that are looking for ways to communicate better and possibly collaborate. In addition, Atkinson attended Big Data Day at UPEI, advised on four economic advisory councils being initiated by the province and relayed an invitation from the chamber of commerce to anyone that wants to attend any of the chamber mixers held each month.
