WFN Economic Development Commission Request for Letters of Interest

WFN is requesting letters of interest for appointment to the  Economic Development Commission (EDC) in order to fill the youth seat and a non-Member seat vacancies. These appointments will be for a 3 year term in accordance with the terms of the EDC  Charter.
The EDC is an advisory board put in place to assist WFN Council and the WFN economic community - WFN  Members, community members and lessees - in creating a healthy, environmentally sustainable and dynamic economy on WFN lands, based on the value of economic self-reliance and a respect for the heritage and cultural values of the Okanagan (syilx) people.

EDC members achieve this by learning about WFN economic development activities, reporting back on any issues or opportunities they may see and representing WFN and Council at events such as Business After Hours, Business Walks, etc.
Applicants actively working in, or representing, small business will be given preference. Applicants should be  interested in becoming educated on WFN and wishing to help act as an ambassador for WFN, not to personally or professionally gain from their position on the EDC. 
Commissioners are paid an honorarium per duly convened meeting and EDC Members are required to meet a minimum of 6 times per year. EDC Members are also encouraged to attend other events that may happen  throughout the year so as to carry out EDC responsibilities.
If interested in applying for this position, please fill out the online application by  12:00pm on August 31, 2019.
