Olds Institute Committees Partner to Connect With the Community

Olds Connected Community and Community Lifestyles present a community information night

(OLDS, Alberta – August 21, 2012) The Olds Connected Community Committee is hosting its second annual Technology Trade Fair on September 6, 2012 from 5-8 PM in the Auxiliary Rink at the Olds Sportsplex. The Olds Connected Community Committee is partnering with the Community Lifestyles Committee at this year’s fall community information night. These two Olds Institute committees expect that new and existing residents of Olds will be able to register for groups, activities and programs in the community and get to see first-hand, samples of technology from local vendors.

“Our Committee believes that effective use of technology can enhance our personal & business lives.”, said Wilson Loree, Chair of the Connected Community Committee. “Our partnership with the Community Lifestyles Committee, also a part of OICRD, creates a greater opportunity to support the community of Olds.” The technology trade fair was held in the Olds Municipal library last year and was successful in connecting members of the community with technology vendors from the Olds area. By bringing the event to a larger venue this year, the Olds Connected Community Committee expects to connect with more people from the community.

The technology planned for display at this year’s trade show ranges from the latest in gaming systems to home entertainment to a sample of the new technology included in the latest cars and trucks. With more space available for vendors this year it’s expected that the residents of Olds will be able to see more of the technology available in the community and enjoy a more hands on experience.

The Mission of the Olds Connected Community Committee is to encourage effective use of technology in Olds. The Olds Institute for Community and Regional Development (OICRD) was established in 2001 as a “think tank” to help coordinate the economic initiatives of the four major players in the community of Olds. The OICRD encourages, initiates, and facilitates community and economic development through the incorporation of the five dimensions of sustainable community; cultural, economy, environment, governance and social.
