The body that represents the interests and welfare of government workers is being re-established after years of dormancy.
The Virgin Islands Civil Service Association (VICSA) will have its first meeting on September 11 to start the revival process.
“The re-launch of the association is part of the activities to diversify Public Service Week 2018. Past and interested members of the committee are invited to attend,” the Office of the Deputy Governor said in a media release this week.
Permanent Secretary in the office, Carolyn Stoutt-Igwe said she was not sure why the VICSA became dormant.
But, she said she was pleased the body is being re-activated and described the initiative was important.
She told BVI News there are currently 2,600 active civil servants employed to the Government of the Virgin Islands.
These do not include employees of government statutory bodies, Stoutt-Igwe said.
