TOURISM EVENTS ON THE SOUTH COAST
Join your South Coast partners from Bandon to Brookings for an engaging series of workshops designed to bolster your community's tourism economy. If you work in the tourism industry, or care about the future of your community, we would love to see you! Come ready to engage in a meaningful discussion about how - together - we can drive new economic activity to this region through tourism.
Ten engaging programs will be offered and we would love to see you at all of them. The more you can attend, the more we can leverage our opportunities on the Southern Oregon Coast. If you have a skill or passion in the one of the following areas we encourage you to attend one (or all) of the following workshops on; culinary and agri-tourism, cycling tourism or nature-based tourism.
The Opening Event will kick off October 8th with a Community Tourism Visioning Event in Port Orford from 4p.m. to 8p.m. Join other members from the Southern Oregon Coast to help define the heart of the destination and be a part of creating the future of tourism in the region.
Sustainable tourism can stimulate the local economy, protect and enhance local resources, and foster community pride. And if that interests you, The Wild Rivers Coast Rural Tourism Studio is for you!

Request for Donation Form One of the tips Margaret Pounder gleaned from the BCC Tuesday Tune-Up program was the
recommendation that business owners adopt a request for donation form. (The recommendation was highlighted in the Destination University webinar series.) As with many Bandon business owners, Pounder is eager to support local projects. She wants to provide equal consideration to requests and wants her donations to make a positive impact in the community.
She adopted a simple, two page request form, which is available online at both her business websites.
"It has cleared the air, allowed us to really focus on those that are well organized and have a 'Plan' to use the donation they are requesting," said Pounder. "We still have some funds set aside for the 'local' need to raise some money quickly for a specific cause that has just arisen. But for the most part we are able to encourage people to go to the website and return the form. We have only had one turned in, and it's a fantastic request for donation."
