2019 Congressional Summit on Travel & Tourism
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Dates to be announced.
The STS Congressional Summit on Travel & Tourism is advocacy in action. More Voices = More Impact.
STS members come together in Washington D.C. and, as a state, meet with their elected officials to discuss legislation that could positively or negatively impact their destinations and visitors. Prior to these meetings, STS provides attendees with a list of talking points, and topic-related guest speakers, so attendees have all the tools they need for a successful visit with their elected officials.
Contact your STS Congressional State Chair - a fellow STS member - for more details about your state.
