Tomorrow, locals have a chance to learn about how to grow the community from a man who has done it before. 

Jace Anderson, executive director of Tourism Medicine Hat, has been integral in the 'Move to Medicine Hat' campaign. He will be joining the next Swift Current & District Chamber on Tap to go over how the program soared so high and achieved so much.

Denise Wall, business development and tourism officer for the City of Swift Current is happy to be partnering with Chamber CEO Karla Wiens on bringing Anderson to Swift Current. 

"[We are bringing Anderson] to speak on the ins and outs and successes of their Move to Medicine Hat campaign," said Wall. "As well as how it's been repeated in other rural markets in Alberta and how it can be repeated here as well."

Members of the Swift Current & District Chamber of Commerce will have the chance to learn about how the tourism appeal of Swift Current is also living appeal. Things like attracting people and then keeping their interest, eventually getting them to join the community permanently. 

"[Anderson] is going to be speaking regarding applying the rural lens to successes in driving and inspiring relocation to our region," said Wiens. "Which of course is going to hopefully help address the number one challenge that most of our members are facing today; labour market shortages."

Wiens highlighted how growing the community is in every business's best interest. A larger pool of individuals to pull and hire helps breed better economic action, allowing the companies in the community to grow alongside it. By taking advantage of the lessons being brought by Anderson, businesses stand to benefit just as much as the City of Swift Current. 

This Chamber on Tap will be taking place in the Swift Current Curling Club lounge, upstairs at the InnovationPlex. Doors open at 5 p.m., with the presentation starting at 5:30 p.m.

For those who misses the presentation, there is a second chance. Anderson will be joining the 49 by 110 Conference at the Living Sky Casino on Wednesday, offering up another opportunity for anyone who missed him the first time.
