In a press release Jan. 24, the board of directors of Destination Southwest Nova Scotia Association announced the resignation of executive director Jeanette Joudrey.

Ainsley Bartram, the group’s communications officer, will serve as action executive director.
“We have an excellent team and we are confident that our organization will continue to grow as one of the tourism leaders in Nova Scotia,” president Ken Langille said. “We have a solid relationship with the Nova Scotia Tourism Agency and, with our combined efforts, we will continue to promote the wealth of world class experiences we offer in our regions to potential and returning visitors.
The tourism marketing association includes approximately 1,000 tourism operators, in the South Shore, Yarmouth and Acadian Shores and the Bay of Fundy and Annapolis Valley regions.
