Comment posted New chair for area tourist body by Mike Story.
HI Dan, if I could interject here.
As communications director I may be gulity of briefing For Argyll on this subject and confusing Lynda with too many As Is and Ts…not to mention a couple of Ss and a P on the end.
Calum Ross was elected at a bog standard quarterly Argyll and The Isles Strategic Tourism Partnership(AISTP) meeting. It just happened to occur on the month that Provist Petrie was standing down. Her Grace also joined the board in order to represent Historic Houses, and become a roving Argyll and The Isles Ambassador.
The AGM we are starting to work on will be for AIT (Argyll and The Isles Tourism Cooperative LTD.
This will set out the details of memberships, directorships etc. Everyone who is involved in tourism groups in Argyll and The Isles will be entitled to become a member.
AISTP and AIT will be fully seperate from eachother. The former will act as a strategy board, and the latter as a working cooperative company.
Once we get the mammoth task of EXPO out the way, we will be looking at timings and venues for the first AIT AGM.
I would ask everyone to bear with us, we are all giving hundreds of hours of our time to EXPO, which frankly is very difficult given most of us are well into our busy season.
As soon as Expo is over, we will get to work on this important matter, so you can all engage and get behind AIT.
