Industry To Discuss Alternate Tourism Funding

For more than a year the Wyoming Lodging and Restaurant Association, the Wyoming Travel Industry Coalition and the Wyoming Tourism Board met to discuss a long term, sustainable and competitive funding source for Wyoming’s statewide marketing program. The Wyoming Office of Tourism is funded entirely by the state’s general fund and is susceptible to the ups and downs of the states economy and the election every two years.

The mission of the Wyoming Travel Industry Coalition is to increase the economic impact of the travel industry in Wyoming, to provide resources for training, communication, and education and to act as the voice for the tourism industry on legislative and government issues affecting the industry.

There is still 3 weeks to file and run for the legislature!

Wyoming is extremely fortunate to have a citizen legislature. What that means is that, when not participating in the legislature, the 60 members in the Wyoming House of Representatives and the 30 members in the Wyoming Senate are all working citizens within our communities.
