October 2017

Dear members of our Annapolis Board of Trade,

As your incoming President, I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the tremendous work that has been done on your behalf over the many years of the Board’s existence, and particularly during the last few years. Under the watch of current and previous members of ABoT’s Council and Executive Officers, administrative systems have been standardized, reserves have been accumulated, and the Visitor Information Centre has continued to operate to support the Town and County’s tourism industry which in turn supports our businesses. Networking events such as our semi-annual luncheons have taken place through successful partnerships and sponsorships, and ABoT members have been involved in the many high profile events that happen throughout the year in this area and the many special events that took place during the Canada 150 anniversary year.The Strategic Planning Committee that was struck earlier by your Annapolis Board of Trade has also undertaken membership and public surveys to inform the work of your current Council as it seeks to identify and act upon your priorities and suggestions for the future.

I very much look forward to meeting with those of you whom I know and those I have not yet met to discuss the many opportunities that we have to work together and achieve those things that we could not easily achieve on our own.

And in case you have not seen the announcement, our next networking event is a luncheon on October 11, 2017 at the Annapolis Royal Fire Hall at 5 St Anthony Street in Annapolis Royal. Warden Timothy Habinski and Chief Administrative Officer John Ferguson will be there to provide you with the details of the exciting and innovative fire-optic build in Annapolis County and to answer your questions about the impact it will have on area businesses. This event is co-sponsored by the Town of Annapolis Royal’s Marketing and Economic Development Committee, the Municipality of the County of Anna polis and your Board of Trade. The cost is $10.00 at the door – please RSVP to phmc@annapolisroyal.com. We hope to see you there!
