Team Cornwall Chair Gilles Latour announced today that Amanda Asselin has been selected for the position of Communications/Development Coordinator with Team Cornwall.

“One of the challenges that Team Cornwall has continually faced is the lack of a dedicated resource person to help out with communications and fundraising activities,” said Mr. Latour. “Amanda comes to us with a diverse background and we’re excited by her enthusiasm, energy and passion.”

Amanda is a Cornwall native and she most recently worked as an Auditor with the Ottawa office of Ernst and Young. She has experience in public relations/communications through previous roles with the City of Ottawa and the Benson organization.

“Cornwall is a beautiful City in which to work and live and I’m excited about joining Team Cornwall and helping the organization in its mission of promoting the achievements of our social and business community,” said Amanda.

Through this term position of approximately 9 months, Amanda will assist Team Cornwall in carrying out its mission of promoting Cornwall and Area and as a great place to live, work and invest. Among other things, Amanda will be responsible for carrying out new marketing and communications initiatives, building and fostering community partnerships and developing new financial opportunities for the organization. These activities will have a positive effect on job retention and creation, private sector investment and the continued economic diversification within Cornwall and SD & G.

Funding for the Eastern Ontario Development Program is provided by the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario) and is delivered by the 15 local Community Futures Development Corporations in Eastern Ontario.

“Community based initiatives that encourage positive change are fundamental to growing our region.  Volunteers have led this grass roots organization for many years.  With support from the Eastern Ontario Development Program, Amanda will ensure that Team Cornwall’s vision and objectives are achieved,” said Charlene MacLennan, Senior Advisor of Grants and Projects for the SD&G CFDC.

“I’d like to thank to Community Futures Development Corporation for supporting Team Cornwall in its efforts to raise the profile of Cornwall and the surrounding area,” said Mr. Latour. “This grant is a significant milestone in Team Cornwall’s history.”
