Upper Bay of Fundy Rural Region Destination Development Summit
On November 1-3, community members and leaders, local business owners and operators, not-for-profit organizations, and representatives from all levels of government gathered from across the county and convened at the Poley Mountain Resort to share ideas and experiences and to plot a course forward for the Upper Bay of Fundy Rural Region. Based on what we learned together at the Summit, the Upper Bay of Fundy Rural Destination Development Project will focus on the following tasks over the next six months:
- determine the organizational structure for a new stakeholder-led destination management organization,
- collaborate to host professional development workshops for operators and community organizations,
- convene follow-up facilitated sessions to build off the work we began at the Summit,
- continue to develop relationships and explore potential for formal partnerships with the Upper Bay of Fundy's five levels of government, and
- continue to engage throughout communities in the region to welcome new people, groups and organizations into the conversation.
We'd like to thank Poley Mountain Resorts for being an excellent host; Pete Grandy, Angela MacDougall, and Jeremy Wilbur for teaming up for a delicious, locally-sourced feast; and Shane Douthwright for providing music.
