On Point Series #2: How can the Okanagan build a future focused resilient economy?

Let's talk about economic prosperity that can make us a diverse, adaptable, and resilient community. Join us on October 25th at 7pm to learn more about economic development in the Okanagan.

Did you know the Okanagan once boasted a prosperous tobacco industry? Can our economic history teach us about how we can adapt to change?

Is resilience the answer, and if so, what’s the secret sauce?

Please join us for a casual evening of local beer, wine, food, music, and art -- where we will hear from industry experts and you -- community members interested in the future of Kelowna.

*On Point is brought to you by Urban Systems Ltd. and in support of the City of Kelowna's community-centred initiative, Imagine Kelowna.

Doors open at 7pm and the program begins at 7:30pm. Coffee, tea, light snacks, and desert will be served. Beer, wine, and ciders will be available at the CASH ONLY bar.

We are please to host a number of community leaders who all play a role in the story of economic resilience.

Larry Widmer – General Manager, Community Futures Development Corporation (Central Okanagan)
Keely Bruel – Okanagan Lavender & Herb Farm
Danielle Levine – Executive Director, Aboriginal Social Enterprise (ASE) Program
Raghwa Gopal – CEO, Accelerate Okanagan
Laurel Douglas, CEO Women's Enterprise Centre

We are thrilled to bring you another witty poem by the talented, Erin Scott.
