Looking for ways to communicate

Communications and engagement with the public will be the focus of a new ad hoc committee of the TNRD board. The committee was established Friday following a proposal I made a few weeks ago to look into ways to better connect with people in the region.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe idea was taken to a strategic planning session and then to Friday’s board meeting via a recommendation from the HR department. That recommendation follows pretty much exactly what I originally put forward.

The committee, which will include two electoral area directors (myself and Ronaye Elliott), a City of Kamloops director and two small-municipality directors, along with the TNRD chair ex-officio, will sit for six months.

Terms of reference are to:

• identify ways to seek input from the electorate on how the TNRD can more effectively communicate with them,

• provide input to staff, based on their areas of expertise, on how existing communication tools and strategies can be enhanced; and,

• clarify communication responsibilities of Directors and develop key messages Directors can use in their communication activities.
