4th Annual Washington Tourism Alliance Summit and Day in Olympia 

Join us for a day of tourism advocacy focused on WTA efforts to secure long-term funding for Washington State tourism marketing and promotion.  Thanks to your support at the 2013 Summit and throughout the session, the WTA received $1 million of short-term funding in this year’s State budget.  Now the push is on for long-term funding and we hope you’ll join us in Olympia to support these efforts.
