Prince Rupert Port Authority seeking community information forum members

The Prince Rupert Port Authority (PRPA) is calling for Rupertites to join the Community Information Forum.

The Prince Rupert Port Authority (PRPA) is calling for Rupertites interested in or concerned with its various activities to join the Community Information Forum.

The forum provides individuals and organizations in Prince Rupert with the opportunity to learn about port-related activities and provide their input.

“The community information forum was formed to provide an interface between the community and the PRPA, and to increase the transparency of the port authority and its initiatives,” said Michael Gurney, the Prince Rupert Port Authority’s manager of corporate communications.

The Community Information Forum isn’t a decision-making body, but helps the PRPA understand the public’s thoughts on various aspect of its activities.

The Community Information Forum is member-driven, with agenda topics coming from the individuals it consists of. The group is given the ability to invite guests or presenters to the table for specific agenda topics.

“It’s a forum for community members to ask questions of anybody at the port authority and for the port authority to make periodic presentations to its members,” said Gurney.

“As an example, they’ve had presentations and discussions focused on environmental assessments, as well port property tax and the Westview Terminal noise and air quality monitoring systems.”

The Prince Rupert Port Authority is seeking half a dozen new memberships from individuals who are interested in port activities and are committed to attending the voluntary monthly meetings.

“It could be a personal interest, or an interest motivated through the organizations with which they’re affiliated, either professionally or as a volunteer. The current membership includes people in all of the above categories,” said Gurney.

To apply to become a member of the Community Information Forum, contact PRPA manager of community relations Maynard Angus at mangus@rupertport.com.
