Who We Are

Established in 2008, BCDMOA is a non-profit society advocating for over 50 community-based destination marketing and management organizations. A respected industry leader, its diverse membership represents a range of communities in terms of size and scope, with over $60 million in spending on strategic tourism marketing and management projects.

As the tourism industry continues to evolve, BCDMOA works to advance the best practices and strengthen the operating standards of destination marketing and management organizations in British Columbia. Working alongside government and industry groups, it acts as a collective voice supporting objectives that meet the needs and leverage the benefits of tourism for the province. BCDMOA is a vital information resource for its members while serving as a professional network for the mutual exchange of ideas and knowledge.

Led by a volunteer Board of Directors of 7-11 members, BCDMOA’s governance represents its diverse members from across the province—from small rural communities to major cities, ski towns to remote coastal outposts.
