CHARLOTTETOWN – The Tourism Industry Association of Prince Edward Island wants its members to take a more active role in ensuring the long-term viability of their economic sector.
The association said in a statement Wednesday that the next step in accomplishing this goal is to bring operators up to speed on its activities on their behalf.
The association has scheduled a series of meetings, Island-wide, for early November on the topic. It will also be collecting feedback during these sessions.
All information collected will be presented to the TIAPEI annual general meeting on Friday, Nov. 29 at the Confederation Centre of the Arts in Charlottetown.
The smaller meetings will be held as follows: Monday, Nov. 4, Montague Wellness Center, 7 – 9 p.m.; Charlottetown, Best Western Charlottetown, Wednesday, Nov. 6, 7 – 9 p.m.; and Summerside, Eastlink Arena, Tuesday, Nov. 12, 7 – 9 p.m.
TAIPEI President Elaine Thomson is encouraging as many industry stakeholders as possible to attend.
“The key to the success of this strategy will be true engagement of our industry members and partners,” said Thomson.
“An industry – led process, planned, developed and executed by, and for, the tourism industry will help determine our future and level of success. To achieve the goals we have set forth for ourselves can only be realized with true commitment and engagement from an involved industry.”
