Please plan to stay after the upcoming board meeting to join us on Wednesday, July 18 at 2:00 p.m. at the Mountain Shadows Resort for a celebration of our 2018 Tourism Advocates of the Year (honored at the Unity Dinner) and PAC fundraiser. This will be held just prior to the start of the Governor’s Conference on Tourism and the Taste of Arizona opening reception. We have invited our industry champions from the Arizona Legislature to join us in recognition of their leadership and to learn more about fueling the momentum for positive policy progress in the travel and tourism industry in our state.

NOTE: A shuttle will be available for attendees of GCOT to easily transfer across Lincoln Drive throughout the afternoon.
