NOTO Staff

Listed below are the people who work hard to represent the interests of the resource-based tourism industry in the NOTO office each day:

Laurie Marcil

Executive Director

Laurie was appointed to the role of Executive Director in 2014.  She is no stranger to the organization or the industry, having spent the last twenty three years in various staff roles at NOTO.  Beginning as the bookkeeper, she soon took on additional responsibilities and has been the Membership Services Manager for the last several years.  In this role she has been the voice and face of NOTO to our members.

Laurie takes great pride in her work. She is dedicated to the needs and concerns of tourism operators across the province and works hard at developing strong and lasting relationships within the industry and government. She is committed to working with the Board, staff and members to shape NOTO into a strong united voice and community. 

Laurie lives in North Bay with her husband John and son Jonathan. In her spare time she likes baking elaborate cakes and treats, spending time enjoying our northern wilderness and opening her house to family and friends.
