Board of Directors

Legendary Coasts Eastern NL DMO is a not for profit tourism organization governed by a volunteer board of directors, elected for 2-year terms at an Annual General Meeting. We have always been incredibly fortunate to have a very active and passionate Board of Directors! This allows our DMO to serve the region with maximum efficacy. 

Our Board of Directors consists of:

5 Sub Regional Directors, 1 from each of the following subregions:

  • Discovery Trail (incorporating the Osprey Trail)
  • The Heritage Run 
  • Baccalieu Trail (incorporating the Admiral’s Coast)
  • The Cape Shore 
  • The Irish Loop

5 Directors at Large

2 Sector Directors (as appointed by the LCEN 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.
