John Saich, one of our Promoter Support Associates, spent the first half of 2016 meeting with each of our Promoters, to find out a bit more about them, their communities, and their future plans. The insight he gleaned from these discussions is helping to shape the support and services that we offer to Promoters.

A recurring theme that he noted, is the need for more opportunities for Promoters to meet with each other, especially closer to home: to network, discuss programming plans, and learn from each other. As much as the annual Spring Gathering is a useful and enjoyable event, meeting face to face only once a year, just isn’t enough.

As a result, the Gathering concept will be brought closer to Promoters this Autumn, with a tour of one day Micro Gatherings encompassing the Central, North and West Highlands, as well as Argyll.
