CCRD approves first Communications and Engagement Plan

CCRD approves first Communications and Engagement Plan

In December 2013, the Central Coast Regional District Board of Directors held a communications workshop with staff and the Northern Development Initiative Trust’s Director of Communications, to discuss development of a communications and engagement plan.

The Board identified three guiding outcomes they wished to achieve in order to more proactively engage with residents, foster an atmosphere of community collaboration and ensure an open and transparent democratic process.

The guiding outcomes include: to increase local knowledge of the Regional District and its mandated objectives among residents, to increase resident engagement with the Regional District and its initiatives to improve trust between the Regional District and the residents it serves, and to strengthen communication and information sharing between the Regional District and the Nuxalk, Heiltsuk and Wuikinuxv First Nations.

At its meeting of 13 February 2014, Central Coast Regional District Board of Directors approved and endorsed the region’s first Communications and Engagement Plan; making this another strategic achievement from the Central Coast Regional District’s 2010 – 2014 Strategic Plan.

The resulting 2014 Communications and Engagement Plan has been designed to provide the Board and staff with a framework and approach to communications and engagement, with the goal of being more effective when engaging with residents and stakeholders, the Regional District serves.

A copy of the 2014 Communications and Engagement Plan can be found on the CCRD website: www.ccrd-bc.ca
