Tourism Langley is calling for nominations for several seats at its annual general meeting next month, in the wake of turmoil on the board.

Former board chair Teri James recently resigned, alongside some other senior board members.

The local tourism promoter has also lost two of its three staff to resignations.

The AGM will be held April 18 from 11 a.m. to noon at Cascades Casino in Langley City. Nominee applications for the accommodations, food and beverage, retail/service, and sport seats on the board must be received by April 4.

Tourism Langley serves both Langley City and Township, and is funded by taxes on hotels and some money from each municipality.

It hit a period of uncertainly last fall. Langley Township reviewed its options and asked for some changes to Tourism Langley's structure, but negotiations faltered. The Tourism Langley board called for a vote to potentially dissolve the organization, which gained more than 50 per cent support, but not the two thirds necessary to dissolve the group.

After that, Langley City officials openly discussed looking at options to create their own tourism agency.
