The Great Waterway regional tourism organization has elected Neil Carbone as its chair of its board of directors.

Carbone, as Prince Edward County’s Director of Community Development for the past two years, is responsible for a diverse portfolio including economic development, land management, development facilitation, business facilitation, museums and heritage, grant management and a host of special community development projects and initiatives.

The board is comprised of industry professionals elected throughout the region. Carbone has represented the County on the board of directors since 2013. The Great Waterway was established in 2010 to promote and invest in tourism along Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River, from Prince Edward County in the West, up the Rideau Canal to the North and to the Quebec border in the East. The Great Waterway region includes unique towns, villages and cities of Quinte West, Belleville, Kingston, Gananoque, Brockville, and Cornwall.

“I look forward to my new role as chair, working to grow visitation and tourism receipts in a region that offers some Ontario’s best tourism experiences and attractions,” said Carbone.

The board of directors is the governing authority for the Region 9 Tourism Organization and is comprised of 13 leaders in the areas of tourism and economic development.
