As part of a partnership with Mount Royal University, Faith Dusevic has joined the Town of Golden to complete her work-experience as a Communications Intern. In order to explore new communication methods with the intent of improving dialogue with the community, Dusevic will be part of the Town of Golden administrative team for the next four months.
Dusevic is local to Golden and is in her fourth year at Mount Royal University where she is obtaining a Bachelor in Communication. She began her employment with the Town of Golden in January and her time will be complete at the end of April.
Jon Wilsgard, CAO, says that “Faith has come aboard during an integral time, as creating more effective communication is a top priority for us. We are excited to explore new methods to connect with the community.”
As Wilsgard states, the Communications Intern role is an opportunity to create further understanding of Town of Golden happenings and important town issues with the community. Some of Dusevic’s roles will include aiding to create a stronger dialogue between the community and the Town of Golden on various projects, including future public consultations regarding the potential Build Canada grant leveraging bylaw.
“The Town of Golden recognizes the value of effective communication,” Mayor Christina Benty says. “It is also one of the things that many local governments are struggling to improve. Part of the challenge is that there are so many different people to communicate with and it often has to be done in different ways. I am thrilled to be working with Faith and look forward to accessing her skill set. This is a great opportunity for the Town of Golden to improve communications and pinpoint potential methods and vehicles for idea and information sharing.”
