"Tourism Talks" Education Series

Our members asked us for more industry resources on a variety of subjects. In response, we developed an Education Series "Tourism Talks". The 2019-2020 program will be again after the summer season.


Special thank you to The Clarion for hosting. Thank you to everyone who attended and look forward to making this an annual event, stay tuned for more educational "Tourism Talks" topics.
