what s missing
What’s Missing
  • Due to the decrease in funding we have cancelled the contract for marketing/administrative support, lowered the funding available for the public relations contract, allocated less for the work on our website, plan to place fewer print ads and eliminated the clipping service fees.
  • There is no funding for international nor travel trade marketing. Our regional funding is not sufficient to add that strategy. We are seeking the development of an international/travel trade interest group among the tourism interests and businesses in the region and that may lead to expansion of these two markets.
wish list
Wish List
  • If we had additional funds we would contract for part-time marketing and administrative support, increase the funds available for work on the website and increase the funding for public relations
