The Dominica Festivals Committee is blaming the passage of ‘Erika’, as the reason why a new Events Director was not appointed in 2015.
The position which was previously held by Trinidadian born Nathalie Clarke became vacant after she resigned in May 2014. She took up that position in August 2010.
Products Promotions Manager at the DDA Kathleen Cuffy-Jno Jules says time and resources were being put into the rebuilding of the country post TS Erika. However, she says the process is ongoing, for assigning a New Events Director in 2016.
Meantime, she says preparations are well on the way for the staging of Carnival 2016.
