Philipsburg Broadcasting joins in promoting Census 2011POSTED: 01/28/11 12:26 PM
St. Maarten – Philipsburg Broadcasting has teamed up with Innovative Marketing Creations to spread information about the 2011 Census. It’s hoped the partnership, which includes messages on Laser 101.1 FM and Tropix 101.5 FM, will create an attitude of participation in the community.
“As a good corporate citizen I think it is our duty to cooperate and be an integral part of this census. As a young country we need to steer St. Maarten in the right direction. In order to do this we need to take an inventory to establish what we have in order to know what we need. Armed with this information our legislators can determine the direction in which to head,” Philipsburg Broadcasting’s owner Francis Carty said.
“I commend Philipsburg Broadcasting on taking the responsibility as an active entity and voice in the St. Maarten community in becoming the first official partner of St. Maarten Census 2011,” Emmalexis Velasquez the Creative Project Manager said.
The team at Innovative Marketing Creations, which is handling the publicity for the census, hope Philipsburg Broadcasting is the first in a line of companies that will help to raise awareness of the census. They believe the greater the reach, the more complete picture there will be of the demographic, economic and social situation of Country St. Maarten.
“This will be the first time the island’s population will be tallied as Country St. Maarten, marking a historic moment in St. Maarten’s history, and increasing the importance of the public’s participation,” the census team wrote in a statement.
