Attend Rally Day in Sacramento each February (part of our Winter board meeting), when we descend on the Capitol for group meetings with CalTravel members and legislators, and attend a CalTravel legislative reception afterwards to reinforce the importance of tourism to legislators in Sacramento
Serve as local resources to share industry issues with CalTravel, and to share CalTravel news with other members

My First Ambassador Experience, by Amy Blaschka, President, rbp consulting:
“I hosted my annual meeting and membership luncheon this past August where over 200 industry and government professionals learned of this innovative outreach program. During my presentation I stressed the importance of leveraging strategic partnerships at a local, regional and state level and that everyone can – and should – get involved. I talked about my recent appointment as an Ambassador, explaining how this was beneficial to CalTravel but also to my constituents in the room, defined CalTravel’s mission statement, discussed the differences between CalTravel and CTTC, and how they worked together to promote California tourism.”
