Tourism association annual meeting is Sunday

  • Mar. 15, 2006 4:00 p.m.

An all-inclusive tourism voice is needed on the islands, says Haida Gwaii Tourism Association president Andrew Merilees.
He hopes those involved in the tourism industry will come to the HGTA’s annual general meeting as a step in moving toward that goal.
He is especially interested in seeing stakeholders from the various communities discuss common issues and find a way to stop duplicating services.
“If we can sit down and figure out a way to go about it, there is no reason we all need to spend money on the same things,” he said.
Mr. Merilees says that great steps were made in 2005 to resurrect the association and the HGTA is poised to promote the Islands to markets around the world.
The AGM is Sunday March 19 at 2 pm in Tlell at the Fire Hall. Light refreshments will be served.
