Three Tourism Langley board members resign

Chair Teri James, treasurer Karen Long and director Lynn Whitehouse have resigned from Tourism Langley

Tourism Langley chair Teri James, treasurer Karen Long and director Lynn Whitehouse have resigned from the Destination Marketing Organization.

Their last day was March 8.

“Future board members will have a direct say in how our region is presented in the world,” said James. “It is an opportunity for others to rise to lead the charge.”

The exiting board members expressed their thanks to the businesses and community for their support and engagement during the trio’s tenure.

“We are exceedingly proud of the work Tourism Langley has accomplished,” said James.

“Any success can be attributed to the dedication and hard work that Tourism Langley staff, board and stakeholders have given this

community over the past nine years. We look forward to seeing what successes the future may hold for the new board.”

The remaining voting directors —Gareth Abreo, Melissa Banovich, Jason Froese, Sylvia Jung and Jeff Leung — intend

to remain in their respective capacities with Tourism Langley until the upcoming annual general meeting.

Earlier this month, the board called a special meeting to vote on dissolution of the organization, following a list of demands from the Township of Langley that the board felt was excessive.

The Tourism Langley membership voted to keep the organization going, but the following day, the City of Langley announced it plans to explore alternative tourism models.
