LANARK COUNTY TOURISM ASSOCIATION ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
Date: Monday, March 31, 2014
NOTE: The breakfast will be free for LCTA members and their guests and there will be a $10 charge for other non-members. For those planning to partake of the breakfast an RSVP is requested before March 21st.
Please RSVP to Anne Shropshire at firstname.lastname@example.org
Time: Meeting will start at 9:00 a.m. and should be finished by 11:00 a.m.
Business to be conducted will include the normal activities of receiving the financial statements for 2013 and the appointment of a slate of directors for 2014.
In addition, the LCTA Board of Directors at our meeting on January 27, 2014 approved a set of changes to the Lanark County Tourism Association Constitution and By-Laws that it will present for approval by the membership. A copy of these changes is attached to this notice for your review.
In simple terms, the County of Lanark in seeking to reduce their administrative costs has decided to no longer provide staff support to the LCTA. The changes to the LCTA Constitution and By-Laws basically reflect our stripping out the references to County Council and County Staff involvement in the operations of the LCTA.
RECENT ONTARIO BUSINESS NEWS
The question "What will you do for me?" is a recurring question heard by pretty much anyone involved with a Chamber of Commerce.
The question to ask should instead be "What can I do to participate with the Chamber?" Participation is the key to a strong community. And in turn a strong community strengthens businesses in the community.
An active Chamber in your community makes things happen. Not all will propel your business to a new level of corporate utopia, but many will create steps for you to get there. Whether you take advantage of the business to business networking or all behind the scenes work (government lobbying, member discounts, strategic planning) the Chamber can help you gain more from your business investment. But the Chamber can only be as strong as the many voices it represents.
YOU CAN HELP TO BUILD A STRONG CHAMBER IN YOUR COMMUNITY
Your involvement does not have to translate to a major time commitment. Simple responses to a member survey will often be enough to decide how a community stands on important issues. The Chamber needs your voice to properly represent you and your business investments.
