We will continue organizing the summer and Christmas activities, which are very consolidated and appreciated by the public, but, from now on, we will focus on being a transmission belt between our associates and the authorities, acting as a lobby, because together We have more weight than alone.
We believe that we will be more efficient to support individual ideas and initiatives, because it is our members who know best what is best for them. That's why we want to create, under the supervision of the coordinators, sub-groups of interests, such as, for example, the actors of restoration or construction, so that they come with their ideas and organize, with our logistical help, the demonstrations or activities that suit them.
And, finally, we need more partners. It is no secret that the basis of success is money. The fee for the association is € 100 per year, which is charged twice. This fee allows the associate to advertise in the application and on the association's website. It entitles you to a free stop or at a reduced cost at the fairs we organize, gives you access to the advantages that we can provide through agreements with service companies, allows you to join the Costa Brava Card, have a voice in our meetings and help in his relations with the town hall. With his contribution, the associate participates in the animation of the town, which attracts tourists and new residents, and increases their chances of doing business.
The amount of subsidies that we receive, both from the City Council and the Generalitat is directly proportional to our own income, therefore, the more partners, the more budget to improve our town. Becoming a member of the association is also an act of commitment with the Calonginos. Together we make our town something exceptional.
