Dan Myers, Chair of the Board of Directors 2017 - 2018
For close to 35 years, TIANB has been helping to move tourism in NB forward and supporting the businesses that have made our industry a strong economic driving force. The Tourism Industry across Canada and definitely in New Brunswick is witnessing growth and transformation. I am particularly energized to see that TIANB and the tourism business communities are playing a crucial role in driving this growth and prosperity forward. Our commitment to pursuing excellence in tourism will ensure that we remain focused on demonstrating leadership in being your voice and the strategic direction of our industry.
Our enduring commitment to the membership is to focus on how we can support your growth. To achieve this, we intend to continue to concentrate on three specific strategic goals that will help the organization set the stage for fostering additional prosperity for your business, communities, and our province.
- Advocating public policy that positions Tourism as a leading sector and that supports and stimulates continued growth for industry.
- Board strategic performance reliability to achieve outcomes that impact positively on your business and our industry as a whole.
- Enhancing government relation
As a member based organization, TIANB's role is significant and its responsibility substantial.
I encourage you to get involved. It takes a dedicated group of people to keep TIANB moving forward, and I want to thank everyone who has helped out in the past. I also would like to see everyone a ttend our yearly Industry Summit. It is the premier tourism conference in NB. The program typically features stimulating keynote addresses, plenary talks, invited sessions, as well as sessions on key and emerging areas. The conference is typically held in the month of May of every year.
Let me close by urging you all - Members and "future Members" alike - to be a part of yet another milestone year and engage with us.
Engage with us as we strive to raise our game yet again, all to serve you better and improve your prosperity and our industry's success. Challenge us to better serve you when you see areas where we might improve. And celebrate with us once we have reached these achievements that a few short years ago seemed unattainable and unworthy of any credible discussion.
Let's celebrate our past successes and attack our future challenges - together.
