Norma and Nick will have a variety of responsibilities and goals including member engagement and support, business development and marketing. The two positions will support the organisation and our members in the challenges and opportunities that we will face in the year ahead.
Alison Elliot, Chair of Angus Tourism Cooperative said:
“The Angus Tourism Cooperative are delighted to have Norma and Nick supporting tourism businesses in Angus in the year ahead. I hope that despite the challenges that 2021 may bring, the tourism community can work together to promote Angus as an exceptional place to visit and enjoy. The Angus Tourism Cooperative and Visit Angus have many projects and initiatives that we aim to deliver over the next 12 months and are looking forward to our existing members, and other tourism businesses and community groups engaging with us to ensure the activity meets the needs of us all.”
