Mission business news showcased in digital publication

A six issue per year electronic newsletter is now out

Biz E newsletter

A new digital publication trumpeting Mission’s business-friendly environs has hit the fibre optic highway.

BizE Newsletter will be sent out digitally every two months, and will feature articles about business successes, and some of the development activity taking place in the district.

The District of Mission’s economic development committee was the driving force behind the newsletter, and according to chair Rex Blane, it has been talked about since last year.

“We felt the District of Mission needed more outreach to the development community,” he said.

The old adage of being “open to business and it will come is passe,” he added. “We need to draw people into our community.”

A request for proposals was issued last November and after three weeks, the lone bid submitter, ClickMediaWorks, was chosen. They have been allotted $1,500 an issue.

“I think it’s quite good pricing,” said Blane. “I’m excited about [the newsletter] myself. It will show that this is what’s going on in Mission. The stories are about what’s happening today.”
