Chamber luncheon to focus on training

Steve Latimer and Sarah Vanderplaats will provide a one-two punch as guest speakers at the Fort Frances Chamber of Commerce’s monthly luncheon this coming Tuesday at the Rainy Lake Hotel.
The emphasis of their discussion will be on staffing and training programs offered in the Fort Frances area.
Latimer, the job development/ placement officer at Northern Development Careers Development Service (NCDS) Career Works, will provide an explanation of NCDS employment programs as well as brief employers on the level of assistance available for training programs for new employees.
Vanderplaats, the placement officer at NCDS, will describe the wage subsidy and skills link programs, as well as the benefits of this program to both employers and employees.
Vanderplaats also will discuss the Summer Jobs Service program offered at NCDS, which provides employers with a wage subsidy for the students they hire.
The luncheon starts at 11:45 a.m.
Although these luncheons normally are restricted to Chamber members, this one will be open to local residents who are considering joining the Chamber and may want to see what it has to offer.
The deadline for Chamber members and non-members to register for the luncheon is noon tomorrow (March 19). Call the Chamber office at 274-5773.
