Unless there has been a change

the city of Wilmington pays some type of subsidy or support fee to the Commission (it has a name which eludes me). New Hanover County also chips in some funds. Then they charge advertising fees for the book which they hope to discontinue through sale of memberships for online access.

From those monies, his salary and administrative expenses are paid.

But note, this piece raises a question.

The piece notes movie production companies will be encouraged to use the services of the dues paying members.

Should that not be a two way street?

There's a breakfast meeting scheduled at the Hilton, which is a nice facility.

But, if the Commission receives a significant amount of dollar support from City Government, why is the meeting being held at the Hilton and not at the City funded Convention Center?

I'd like to hear the answer for that one from the film commission Director.

And I'd like to hear the Mayor's response to the slap in the face if there is no legitimate reason for the meeting not being held at the CC. After all, the Mayor is one of two City Council members who serve on the Film Comission Board of Directors. Did the Mayor feel the stiletto being slipped between his ribs?
