Silver Star meeting cancelled

A report about marketing the Silver Star community has been put on hold. The Regional District of North Okanagan has cancelled a 2 p.m. meeting Wednesday because the Silver Star marketing task force has withdrawn its request to discuss resort association status. “The intent of the meeting was to receive preliminary input from the board of directors prior to proceeding with a stakeholder engagement program,” states a release. “The task force has advised that it has received significant input on the proposed Silver Star resort association over the past few weeks and would like to consider this input before meeting with the board of directors to receive input.” The task force will meet with interested parties, which will be followed up with a formal stakeholder engagement program in December and January. A resort association is incorporated under the B.C. Societies Act for the purpose of delivering a range of promotional services to a resort community. These services include activities such as marketing, planning special events, developing signage and acting as a central booking agency for events and accommodations. The Resort Associations Act allows a society to charge a levy to its members in order to support the cost of its operations.
