Ontario’s Highlands Tourism Organization holds its first AGM

(Pembroke, ON) – The recently formed Ontario’s Highlands Tourism Organization (OHTO) will be holding its first Annual General Meeting (AGM) at Calabogie Peaks Resort in Calabogie, Ontario on Tuesday, February 22, 2011. The AGM will run from 10 am to noon, and will include the introduction of new board members and a progress report of OHTO activities to date. The afternoon session from 1 to 4 pm will consist of a board meeting and the first opportunity for the Marketing and Product Development standing committees to meet.

“The AGM offers current and new board members, sub-regional partners, tourism operators, other stakeholders, and the general public an opportunity to meet the new board of directors and to discuss ideas and initiatives,” according to Leah Piltz, Marketing and Communications Coordinator at the OHTO. “The size of our region often prevents face-to-face communication – the AGM is a good occasion for tourism professionals to network and learn about what the OHTO is doing to increase tourism in our region.”

The OHTO has a government mandate, as the 11th of 13 provincial Regional Tourism Organizations, to increase tourism to the region, which includes the counties of Haliburton, Hastings, Frontenac, Lanark, Lennox and Addington, and Renfrew. Notable achievements so far include a strategic partnership with Direction Ontario, the leader in Francophone tourism marketing, to increase regional visibility with the French-language tourist market, the beginning of a large-scale project to develop and enhance hobby mineral-collecting and recreational geology assets, and the upcoming Disney Institute “Disney’s Approach to Quality Service” customer service training seminars.

The AGM is open to members of the general public. Find out more about the OHTO at http://www.ohto.ca
