One important focus for all the new administration is that 2014 is the Second Homecoming.
ABC was one of the few Scottish Counties to get little benefit from the First one, except through the efforts of a small number of individuals.
This initiative is one that fits Argyll best of all, and should be grasped immediately as a huge opportunity that we will need the next 18 months active hard work to make the most of.
Each of the groups and organisations involved in our heritage and culture need support of various kinds to develop the best response appropriate to themselves and then coordinated to be able to deliver a joint welcome message to the hundreds of thousands of the diaspora of Argyll around the world.

- There is a very simple argument for heritage.
There has been consistently more time and money spent on the website Ancestry.co.uk than Ebay.co.uk over the past decade.
As a genealogist there are hundreds of thousands of people wanting to learn where their ancestors came from. That includes the people who still live in the same area. They want to learn the skills, experience the lives, understand the communities. They want to take home something that will remind them of it.
We have the beginnings of Ardchattan Parish Archive here. Up till this year it was not very accessible but still people came. Those people had often been to other places, like Lismore, (families commonly related). One partner might have spent time learning about their people, the other had spent over £100 in the shop, enjoyed the cafe, and the scenery. Happy people… useful income to the area without any exploitation or degradation to the island.
Our heritage is a living creature – our past informs our future. There are thousands of stories yet to be told.
There is plenty about our old skills that we will need in the future.. and that people simply enjoy learning.
To do that while staying in the most beautiful scenery, and in some of the finest accommodation in the country is a magical mix for any marketing guru to fall in love with.
