Tourism Board Seeks Representatives in Arts & Culture and Lodging

Wednesday, November 9, 2016

The Tompkins County Strategic Tourism Planning Board (STPB) is recruiting two new members representing local arts and culture, and one new member representing lodging, to begin service in early 2017. Tompkins County residents are invited to submit an application no later than December 5, 2016.

The STPB is a volunteer public board that advises the Tompkins County Legislature on effective use of over $2.5 million in hotel room occupancy tax revenues. Its mission is to provide oversight and strategic direction for tourism initiatives that promote economic development and enhance the quality of life in Tompkins County.

The STPB contains balanced representation with interests in lodging, retail, recreation, arts and culture, institutions of higher education, agriculture, and other relevant sectors of the local tourism industry. The arts & culture and lodging representatives will have the opportunity to support dynamic new initiatives being led by the Tompkins County Tourism Program. The board meets on the third Wednesday of each month from 3:00 to 5:00 pm. More information about the Tompkins County Tourism Program and the STPB is available online at www.tompkinscountyny.gov/tourism.

For an application, visit the county’s website at http://www.tompkinscountyny.gov/legislature/advisory-board  or call the Legislature office at 607-274-5434.
