Mentoring Program for local promoters
Following on from the kick-off local promoter meeting, a mentoring program is being organised for local promoters. Six two-hour meetings a year, over three years, to lay the foundations for the rural tour, answer questions and provide a forum for discussion between professionals and passionate amateurs.
