I've been nearly four months into my role here at AMPPE, and I've had the opportunity to meet and speak to many AMPPE members. It has been a pleasure to meet so many enthusiastic and innovative entrepreneurs.
While much of the focus at AMPPE over these last months has been around COVID, and that will continue, AMPPE is now able to start looking forward to longer-term objectives. The members I have had the opportunity to speak with have told me that they want to see AMPPE continue to advocate for access, data-driven decision-making, leasehold certainty, and funding for the Mountain Parks. Nearly unanimously, members seem interested in reducing the emissions footprint of tourism in the Parks and accessing funding to make Mountain Park businesses more sustainable.
As always, the primary interest of members is to enhance the visitor experience. To do this, AMPPE will advocate for, amongst other items, improving transit, and improved cycling and cross country ski options. With more federal funding available, AMPEE, through Global Public Relations, will work to identify, access and advocate for Mountain Park investment.
This fall and winter, AMPPE will work with Global Public Relations to develop webinars and engagement sessions on some of these topics. I would love to hear any ideas you have for AMPPE events or information sessions.
Please let me know if you are interested in meeting for a coffee, a call, or even a nice hike. I am interested in learning about your business and what challenges and opportunities you see ahead. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 587 335 0829.
