March 24, 2020 - Fernie COVID-19 Meeting Invite

Wednesday, March 25, 2020 - 12:21

Good afternoon Fernie Chamber members,

Last Thursday the Fernie Chamber and Tourism Fernie co-hosted a virtual meeting on Zoom for members of the business community regarding COVID-19. Updates were provided from Mayor Ange Qualizza and CAO Michael Boronowski (City of Fernie), Jikke Gyorki (Tourism Fernie), Kurt Saari (Nevados/Tourism Fernie) and myself, followed by a Q&A period. A video recording of that meeting is available here.

We all agreed that this was of real value, and are now going to host meetings in a similar format for the Fernie business community every Thursday afternoon at 1:30pm. Please click on the link below to join the next meeting scheduled for this Thursday. All are welcome to virtually attend via the Zoom platform online.
