Leadership for the 21st Century
On April 22nd, 1999, members of the Break Open
Ticket Program Management Alliance (BOTPMA) gathered in Toronto to discuss the
future of Ontario’s Break Open Ticket (BOT) industry.
Ever mindful of the challenges and threats to the future of the industry, the
members examined themselves, drafted a new mission statement, and established
a series of Goals and Objectives that will guide BOTPMA and its members into
the 21st century.
BOTPMA’s new mission statement is reflection of the new-found maturity of
Ontario’s BOT industry, and of an ability to think long-term about the
future of the industry and the role that BOTPMA sees itself playing within the
Through the development of this document, entitled Leadership
for the 21st Century, BOTPMA has established itself as one of
the leading partners in the industry and has recognized that this industry has
a long and prosperous future ahead of itself.
The development of Leadership for the 21st
Century is but one step in the process.
The difficult task now begins of prioritizing, and then implementing
the Goals and Objectives that have been set.
As the entrepreneurs who turned Ontario into the largest charitable BOT
market in North America, BOTPMA is clearly up to the challenge.
My thanks to all those who participated in the development of the
Leadership for the 21st Century, and to Rick Sleaver of The
Panache Group Inc. for facilitating our planning session.
I look forward to working with all members of BOTPMA to achieve our Goals and
Objectives, and to building a long-term future for Ontario’s BOT industry.
Marie Kordos, President
