15 Partners Tell the Lethbridge Story to Leaders in Edmonton

Lethbridge’s many strengths and opportunities – including a diversified economy, rich arts and cultural heritage, strong public sector leadership and industry strength – are the topics of discussion as representatives from 15 city organizations travel to Edmonton to meet with Government of Alberta elected officials and their staff teams. 

This is the second trip that Team Lethbridge is making to further develop connections with government leaders. Lenze Kuiper, Board Chair of Economic Development Lethbridge, says, “Since our first trip two years ago, we believe there has been a marked increase in visits from provincial government leaders and opposition members.  This increase in connectivity is one of our goals.  Also, given our distance from the legislature and the important contributions Lethbridge is making in Alberta, it is valuable to take time to emphasize the assets of our community and learn more about how to work effectively with the provincial government.”
