We're talking about forming a Collective

On Saturday, July 29, our president, Rae Ann Bonneville was interviewed on CVCR - Coastal Villages Community Radio. She had a great discussion with host Don Sedgwick and co-host John DeMont, about the idea of creating a Collective with the other Boards of Trade and Chambers in what is referred to as our Economic Zone (start time 6:25 min)


Following her discussion, stay tuned for their conversation with the mayor of the Municipality of the District of Lunenburg - MODL, Carolyn Bolivar-Getson, about the impact and aftermath of the recent storm (start time 32:45 min)

Here is the link:

Thank you so much to Don Sedgwick for the invitation. We love what you are doing for the community and we look forward to future conversations. CVCR broadcasts live over the internet every Saturday and have an archive of conversations and shows:
