Each year, TMAC Directors invite nominations for the forthcoming year's National Board of Directors.

In the approach to our AGM being hosted on May 26th, we are currently seeking nominations for four (4) Directors-at-large for a two-year term (from among media or industry members), for a term beginning June 26, 2022.

These four positions will join the balance of the Board of Director members who are all currently serving the second of their two year term, including myself as the President, Vice-President Paul Knowles, Secretary Judi Cohen, Treasurer Grant Fraser, and Directors at Large, Pam Wamback, Yashy Murphy and Jerry Grymek.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, we are extending an invitation to yourself to consider nominating someone – or standing for office yourself. These positions are volunteer positions. As we emerge from the impacts of COVID-19 and contribute to the recovery of the tourism industry and success of our members, our organization is strengthened and driven by the contributions of our Board of Directors.
