Committee Makeup

President/CEO will appoint a Tourism Committee Chairperson in the last quarter of each year. The Tourism committee comprises tourism-related marketing partners, and chamber membership is not required. The only requirement is that you are a tourism business participating in matching funds for the tourism marketing grant. The Chairperson of the Tourism Committee is invited to serve in an advisory capacity at all regularly scheduled Board of Directors meetings. A Vice-chair will be appointed by the current Chair and President/CEO before the next calendar year with the intention of the Vice Chair filling the role of Chair the following year. The Tourism Committee Chairperson may seek ad-hoc sub-committee chairs to coordinate various activities.  These sub-committee chairs will serve as members of the Tourism Committee.  Members-at-large are welcome to attend regular meetings of the Tourism Committee and its sub-committees. 


Scope of Work

  • Meet quarterly to make marketing recommendations for spending related to the Idaho Travel Council Grant.
  • Meet at the beginning of the calendar year to recap the previous year’s Tourism Marketing results and make recommendations for the following year’s grant proposal.
  • To establish continuity, minutes will be taken at Tourism Committee meetings and distributed to committee members and the Chamber membership if requested.
