  Applications available through May 31
  for tourism and marketing task force

 

Scottsdale is seeking applicants to serve on a new task force overseeing the 2012 Tourism Development and Marketing Strategic Plan. 

The plan was recently adopted by the City Council and includes strategies to enhance local tourism and ensure Scottsdale remains competitive as a visitor’s destination.

The nine-person task force will advise the City Council on the status of the plan, its objectives and milestones. Members will be selected who represent or have expertise in areas addressed by the plan, such as tourism, business development, arts and culture and civic engagement.

The task force application and the Tourism Development and Marketing Strategic Plan are available at www.scottsdaleaz.gov/economics under the tourism and lifestyle section.
 
The plan covers a five-year period. The task force is scheduled to meet throughout that time, but members have the option of serving shorter terms. The City Council will select task force members from the applicant pool at a future meeting.

The deadline to submit an application is 5 p.m. May 31. Applications can be returned via email to hshannon@scottsdaleaz.gov or dropped off to the city’s Economic Development Office at 4021 N. 75th Street, Suite 102.

For more information, contact the Economic Development Office at 480-312-7989 or email the address above.
