MEDIA RELEASE: The St. Catharines Downtown Association is pleased to announce a new interim Chairperson, effective immediately. Brian Gasbarini, owner of Rise Above Restaurant, has taken over the helm as official spokesperson for the Board of Management of the Business Improvement Area Association. Brian will be working alongside the Executive Director, Tisha Polocko, and the other Board members to represent the interests of the membership.
There have been four recent departures from the Board of Management. These vacancies have made room for interested downtown business members to step forward and enjoy an active part in the overall decision process in the promotion of the downtown core and advocacy of its members, as well as creating the opportunity for a diverse board of management that represents our downtown membership well. Please note the current term ends in the Fall of 2022; this would be a good opportunity to contribute as a member of the board of management with only a two year commitment instead of four full years.
We are thankful for the many years of dedication, time and effort put forth by our outgoing volunteer Board of Management members.
Interested parties are invited to contact the Downtown Association with reference to the current board vacancies by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or phoning 905-685-8424. Please indicate your interest as soon as possible and a nomination package will be forwarded to you. We ask for the return of your duly completed nomination package within two weeks. The final deadline for receiving completed nomination packages is Friday October 16, 2020.
