A curious community and a compelling speaker! What a recipe for an interesting Meet and Greet Lunch being held by the South Queens Chamber of Commerce at:

Best Western Plus Liverpool Hotel & Conference Centre on Wednesday, November 29th, from 12noon to 2pm 

Fresh from attending the largest cannabis industry show in Las Vegas, Myrna Gillis, founder and CEO of Aqualitas will be providing an informative overview of the companies she heads up that will be setting up in Port Mersey Commercial Park, just outside Liverpool. Jobs will be at the forefront of everybody’s minds, as will the details of how this state of the art cannabis production facility will operate.

Gillis is a sought-after industry expert, who has also practiced labour and employment law for 25 years, primarily representing individuals and agencies supporting persons with disabilities before joining the cannabis industry.

Chamber President, Jonathan Lloy said, “The Chamber is excited to welcome Aqualitas to our community and especially pleased to have Ms. Gillis take time from her busy schedule to present to us on November 29th.”

All are welcome to attend the luncheon.
