Tourism Marketing Team Needs New Committee Member

The Morden Tourism Marketing Team is made up of a group of residents that are appointed by Council to help market the existing events and attractions in Morden with the aim of increasing year-round tourism to the community.  The group is funded by Council.

Each year there is a need for new members.  This year we need one new member so the team invites residents to express an interest in serving on this committee.  Once received, the names will be given to Council and they will decide who will serve on the committee from January to December 2013.  Initially the term is one year, giving the newcomer a chance to see how the committee works.
