On Tuesday 27th July, the Dominica Hotel and Tourism Association will host its 52nd Annual General meeting under the theme “Meeting The Membership Expectations”.
“As usual we are thankful and humbled that we have been able to come to another financial year as the private sector representatives for the Tourism Industry. As we all know the challenges of the Covid virus continue and will continue to affect the industry for the foreseeable future.” reported First Vice President of the association Mrs. Avril Coipel.
“This reality has allowed us to gain a unique perspective on our advocacy, membership development, and communication. The industry has expectations for how the private / public sector relationship should continue, how they are represented, and how to derive long term benefits from association. These are key factors coming from our industry, and as an association we have to listen carefully.”
