What is a Stakeholder?
A ‘Stakeholder’ is an individual or group with an interest in the success of Tourism Surrey in delivering intended results and maintaining the viability of the organization's products and services. There are two categories of stakeholders including:
Marketing Partner (Voting Stakeholder)
A voting stakeholder is a stakeholder that has financially invested in at least one Tourism Surrey program within the twelve (12) months of purchase. Voting stakeholders will be entitled to all the benefits of a regular stakeholder in addition to being entitled to attend and vote at meetings of the association. Tourism Surrey programs have an entry-level rate of $25.00. For the benefit of businesses not actively marketing but wishing to maintain voting status, a special annual rate of $100.00 is available.
Tourism Partner (Non-Voting Stakeholder)
A non-voting stakeholder is any business, organization or consortium actively operating a business, facility or service which is a component of tourism but does not contribute financially to the organization. A non-voting stakeholder will receive regular communications from Tourism Surrey such as newsletters, Council of Tourism Association (COTA) alerts and program opportunities by email. Non-voting members will be included in the association’s database of stakeholders and be entitled to participate in Tourism Surrey’s marketing initiatives. Non-voting stakeholders will be entitled to attend meetings of the association but will not be entitled to vote.
