Persons who want to help with Census 2010 are invited to attend public information meetings starting Thursday, 3 June, from 5.30 to 7 p.m.

On Grand Cayman, the meetings will be held in:

West Bay on Thursday, 3 June, at the John A. Cumber School Hall;

George Town, Tuesday, 8 June, at the Family Life Centre, Walkers Road;

Bodden Town, Thursday, 10 June, at the Bodden Town Primary School.

On Cayman Brac, the meeting also takes place on Thursday, 10 June, at the Aston Rutty Centre.

Light refreshments will be served at each meeting.

"We are urging all interested persons to come, listen and sign up for a chance to be chosen as a census worker," Economics and Statistics Office Director Maria Zingapan said.

Attendees will learn about the criteria to qualify to be census workers. These include having a high school diploma or higher, a current driver's licence, and use of reliable transportation. Census workers must also be discreet, honest and have neat handwriting.

Persons who have already signed up are also asked to attend. The approximately 270 census workers selected will join the team conducting the national population and housing count that begins on 10 October this year, the Director explained.

Those selected will then undergo training in September to become either enumerators or supervisors in the different districts.
