(Northwest Tennessee, January 2, 2024) – As 2023 draws to a close, the Northwest Tennessee Tourism Association (NWTTA) proudly reflects on a year marked by significant achievements and renewed momentum. From impactful advocacy efforts to a revitalized digital presence, the organization solidified its commitment to promoting the region as a premier tourist destination.
Year of Progress:
NWTTA was able to execute the first-ever Northwest Tennessee Legislative Breakfast with resounding success. State legislators, tourism stakeholders, and community leaders gathered at Discovery Park of America to discuss the critical role tourism plays in Northwest Tennessee’s economy. The breakfast solidified NWTTA’s role as a champion for the industry, paving the way for future advocacy efforts. Save the date for this year’s event as they cap off National Travel and Tourism Week, on Friday, May 24, 2024!
Committed to operating with efficiency and transparency, the organization undertook a comprehensive overhaul of its bylaws. The updated bylaws streamline governance, promote member participation and influence, and set the stage for continued organizational growth.
In a testament to the organization’s growing influence and impact, NWTTA reached its full board capacity for the first time ever. This diverse group of leaders from across the region brings a wealth of expertise and perspectives to the table, ensuring well-rounded decision making and a commitment to representing the entire area.
