Directors & Committees

Our organization is governed by a volunteer board of directors. Upon this board sit Directors at Large, voted in at our Annual General Meeting and sitting two-year terms. In addition, the board is advised by five Tourism Advisory Sub-Committees (TASCs), each representing sub-regions within Eastern Newfoundland. These include The Discovery Trail (incorporating the Osprey Trail), The Heritage Run, Baccalieu Trail (incorporating the Admiral’s Coast), The Cape Shore and The Irish Loop. Each TASC is able to select one member to sit on the board.

In addition to the responsibilities undertaken as a volunteer director, the Chair also sits on the NL Tourism Board, a private-public partnership responsible for the seven strategic directions of Vision 2020.
