Vacancies in tourism boardroom
Applications are being sought from people wanting to become board members of regional tourism organisation Destination Marlborough.
Allan Scott, a Marlborough winemaker appointed to the board by the Marlborough District Council, retired from it last week.
Two other directors - Interislander general manager Thomas Davis and part-owner of Bay of Many Coves Resort Nigel Gould - finish their terms in February.
The district council advertised last week for applications for the council-appointed position.
Applications close on December 20.
Barbara Faulls, another council appointee to the Destination Marlborough board and who heads its appointments committee, said advertisements for the two positions becoming vacant in February would be run early next year.
Both Mr Davis and Mr Gould are eligible to be reappointed.
However, Mrs Faulls said the organisation was very conscious it was a public position and it wanted to be transparent in its workings.
The board would be happy if Mr Gould - Destination Marlborough's chairman - and Mr Davis rejoined the board.
They both had fantastic knowledge and brought a good mix to the board, she said.
Board members did the work for "love of the province", Mrs Faulls said.
Board member fees were $200 a quarter.
"It basically covers your petrol money," she said.
