Tourism Board Seeks Two Representatives

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

The Tompkins County Strategic Tourism Planning Board (STPB) is recruiting two new members to begin service in January 2015. Tompkins County residents are invited to submit an application no later than October 20th, 2014. One representative from the Arts and Culture sector of the local tourism economy is sought, along with one Lodging representative.

The STPB is a volunteer public board which advises the Tompkins County Legislature on effective use of over $2 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. Meeting dates are the third Wednesday of each month from 3:00 to 5:00 pm.

For an application, visit the County’s website at http://tompkinscountyny.gov/legislature/advisory-board or call the Legislature office at 607-274-5434.  Questions about  serving on the STPB can be directed to Lynnette Scofield, chair of the STPB Membership and Bylaws Committee, millerinn@aol.com.  More information is available on the Tompkins County Tourism Program’s website:  www.tompkinscountyny.gov/tourism.
