It has been a busy six months for Bay of Connections. Since the announcement of the Provincial Growth Fund earlier this year, we’ve been working hard to ensure the wider Bay of Plenty is in the best possible position to benefit from opportunities provided by the fund.
Planning is also underway for the Bay of Connections Yearly Forum, to be held in Rotorua on 3 August, while work has also commenced on the review of the Bay of Connections strategy.
I’d also like to take this public opportunity to thank Fiona McTavish, who has stepped down from her role as the Bay of Connections Management Group Chair, following her appointment as Chief Executive, Bay of Plenty Regional Council Toi Moana. Fiona made an immense contribution to Bay of Connections and she is set to do the same in her new role. Jacky James has agreed to take on an acting role as Management Group Chair for the next few months, and is already doing an outstanding job.
