The Nanaimo Airport is welcoming the public to an open house next Tuesday to learn more about its operations.

“As a part of our constitutional responsibilities as an Airport Commission, we host an annual open house to allow the public to learn more about our operations and share their feedback”, said Mike Hooper, president and CEO of the Nanaimo Airport Commission (NAC).

The open house is being held in the main terminal building on Nov. 22 from 3 p.m.-6 p.m.

The Nanaimo Airport staff and board of directors will be in attendance to talk with individuals about the commission’s work and will conduct tours of some of the operational equipment.

Refreshments will also be served.

The commission is comprised of up to nine directors and a past chair, all appointed by the commission.

Of the nine directors, four are selected by the commission to represent the community at-large and the remaining five appointments are as a result of the nominations from these entities as indicated by the NAC bylaws:

The City of Nanaimo

The Regional District of Nanaimo

The Cowichan Valley Regional District

The Town of Ladysmith

The Greater Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce

Alex Stuart is currently representing the Ladysmith on the board and his three year term expires in 2018.

John Craig is past chair and represents the Cowichan Valley Regional District through to next year.
