The Table de développement social du Memphrémagog (TDSM), the Corporation du développement communautaire (CDC) Memphrémagog and the Regional County Municipality of Memphrémagog (MRC de Memphrémagog) are urging citizens in the MRC’s 17 municipalities to take part in a survey as part of the creation of a new social development policy in the region. Ed Humphrey, project manager at Townshippers’ Association, a local organization serving the Township’s English-speaking community, says the survey aims to “check the pulse of…all the different players in the community and how they feel,” regarding their quality of life.
Humphrey, as part of his responsibilities as project manager at Townshippers’, sat on the board of directors of the Table de développement social du Memphrémagog, and was involved in the collaborative process guiding the creation of a social development plan that led to the creation of the survey.
