InfoTurismo Jimena is getting its papers

JIMENA Just got back from a meeting of the new InfoTurismo Jimena association. It is a private enterprise with some support from the Council, that aims at promoting tourism in the municipality. This evening's meeting was to set up the association statutes, set fees and to elect the Board members. So far, our President is Nieves Domínguez Rodríguez (Restaurante La Estación in San Pablo) and on the Board are Melissa González-Morgan (Casa Henrietta, in Jimena), José Quirós (of local development) and Fiona Rayner (Cortijo Román). Other members, such as Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer will be elected at the next meeting. Among other things, the statutes were approved and will be presented to the Registro de Asociaciones, so we can begin to function officially. It was felt that it was important to have the 'office' open as soon as possible, but as there is no finance as yet, Alberto Bullrich volunteered to man the wooden cabin on a regular basis as soon as the association comes into being. Once that happens, the Council has said it will make a proper office available on the ground floor of the 'silo' building (behind the present hut). Watch this space - information as to how to become a member will be available soon.
