The Canadian-American Society of South Carolina (CASSC) will soon have up and running a computerized electronic bulletin board to promote trade, tourism and investment between Canada and South Carolina, Steve Flamm, a commercial officer with the Canadian Consulate in Atlanta announced this week.
Speaking at a meeting of the American Marketing Association at the Cobb Chamber of Commerce, Mr. Flamm said that members of Canadian-American Societies throughout the Southeast would have the opportunity to join the electronic trade network which will be available from anywhere in the world with a telephone connection.
Dues paying members will be able to place announcements concerning the following economic sectors: high tech, consumer products, industrial products, technology transfer, tourism, investment and services.
The bulletin board is to be maintained by the Small Business Development Center at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, S.C. Non-members, according to Mr. Flamm, will be permitted limited access on a read-only basis, but not be permitted to display their companies’ announcements.
