Join us for 2018 Rally Day!
This is a vital role that you can play in promoting California tourism, continuing your personal education, and expanding your professional network. It is important to the travel and tourism industry, and it is free, educational, and fun. Come to a complimentary lunch and training at the Kimpton Sawyer Hotel at noon on February 28th. Following the lunch and training, we will descend on the Capitol in small groups to meet with legislators and educate them on the benefits of a strong tourism economy. We will follow the meetings with a networking reception for participants, legislators, and staff. Whether you are a veteran at advocating, or have never met with a legislator before, we will ensure that you are prepared and have a great experience.
Here is a quick video of last year’s Rally Day to show you what it is like. Please join us. Together our voices are stronger and louder!
