Press Release

The Kootenay Boundary Community Services Co-operative (the Koop) is inviting residents from Castlegar, Nakusp and Creston to participate in their focus group sessions addressing the delivery of community social services programs.

The sessions are set for January 2015 and an honourarium of $40 and refreshments will be provided.

“We are aiming for a diverse group of six to eight residents in each municipality. We are looking forward to learning more about how the public perceives community services organizations through this project,” said Koop executive coordinator, Prudence Elise Breton.

“We are encouraging individuals to apply who are 21 or older,  have resided in the region for five years or more and who are not currently employed (or do not have immediate family employed) by a social services organization or related Ministry.”

The project requires a time commitment of one evening for 1.5 to two hours. To apply to participate, email theresa@thekoop.ca to request an application form or go to fluidsurveys.com/surveys/thekoop/2014-focus-group-survey.
