Final Task Force Meeting

June 26, 2018

Earlier this week, the Task Force held a meeting of over 100 community stakeholders in St. Thomas to give a summary of our findings so far and a preview of the initiatives. You can watch the entire presentation here and on Facebook, courtesy of www.wtjx.org. We are excited to report that over 2,000 individuals have streamed the presentation already.

All Virgin Islanders are invited to comment on the report which will be available on our website on July 20, 2018 through July 27, 2018. Feedback from the public will help this report be as thorough as possible. The final version will be released at the end of August.

This report has been a collaborative effort with members of the community, and we are grateful for the continued participation and support of all Virgin Islanders. We are honored to serve the territory, and appreciate the opportunity to continue to work together to make the USVI stronger.
