Be­ing a mem­ber is be­ing part of a team

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS - AL GRUNDY Tourism Whit­sun­days chair­man

THE end of the fi­nan­cial year is a funny time for most busi­nesses.

On the one hand, it’s full of fig­ures and in­voices, rec­on­cil­i­a­tions and “bor­ing” fi­nan­cials; but on the other hand, it is a good time to re­flect on the year that has just passed.

We don’t of­ten take the time as busi­ness own­ers to step back and re­view our busi­nesses and a new fi­nan­cial year is a great op­por­tu­nity to do that and re­flect on our suc­cesses.

The new fi­nan­cial year is also the time that Tourism Whit­sun­days an­nual mem­ber­ship fees click around and if you haven’t al­ready com­pleted your pa­per­work, I would urge you to get it in as soon as pos­si­ble.

That way you will re­ceive a full year’s worth of ben­e­fits.

Mem­ber­ship re­newals have been very strong so far, au­gur­ing ex­tremely well for the com­ing year.

Our strength as an in­dus­try is that we all work to­gether and now, more than ever be­fore, we need to band to­gether and work col­lab­o­ra­tively, so we can build mo­men­tum in the mar­ket­place and drive vis­i­ta­tion to our re­gion.

Tourism Whit­sun­days is an in­clu­sive and proac­tive or­gan­i­sa­tion that has its mem­bers’ in­ter­ests at its core.

As well as be­ing the re­gion’s lead mar­ket­ing and vis­i­ta­tion agency, Tourism Whit­sun­days lob­bies gov­ern­ments at all lev­els for fund­ing and sup­port for our lo­cal tourism in­dus­try.

Be­ing a mem­ber means you are part of a team – a team that is se­ri­ous about mar­ket­ing our beau­ti­ful des­ti­na­tion to ab­so­lute best ef­fect and build­ing on our world renowned brand.

If you are still to do your mem­ber­ship pa­per­work, please email Emma Scar­rott as soon as pos­si­ble on mem­ber­ship@tourism whit­sun­days.com.au.
