Wednesday,  July 15, 2009 –  The beauty and wellness sector for the first time,  will subscribe to an overall  representative body which will embrace  hair dressers, barbers and body art specialists among others. 


The impetus for the formation of the organization was supported  by the Small Enterprises Development Unit (SEDU), within the  Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Consumer Affairs in the ministry's continuing bid to formalize micro and small businesses on island.


Business Development Officer of SEDU Rocelyn St. Hill Howell,  says the ministry  in collaboration with the Saint Lucia Coalition of Services Incorporated, conducted a well received  one day sensitization workshop  for  beauty and wellness practitioners on Monday, July 13.


“The  full name of the association has not been well established as yet, but it is centered around the hair, beauty and spa persons.  In fact the association has done some preliminary work in terms of developing by-laws, establishing best practices, internal  procedure, code of ethics and so on. The work is still in the formative stages. The  intention is to build a membership so that the work of the association can move forward.”


Ms. Howell says ministry  commends  the tremendous  commitment displayed by  the Saint Lucia Coalition of Service Incorporated.


“In fact, the administrative manager for  the Saint Lucia Coalition of Services, Ms. Yvonne Agard has been instrumental in working with the Association towards developing the different organizational processes, and procedures, and the laws supporting them.”


The ministry, she says, views the organization of  the beauty and wellness practitioners into an Association as commendable and overdue.
