Whether your CVB has a staff of 1 or a staff of 20, having appropriate checks and balances in place that govern your financial practices is critical to protecting your organization, your Board – and you. Led by an experienced DMO auditor, this session will arm you with information to ensure that you have the best practices in place for today’s world – so that you aren’t tomorrow’s headline.

Presenter: Jason Duff, Founder/CEO

Le’s face it. At some point, every CVB faces the challenge of educating stakeholders and residents on the impact and relevancy of tourism and your work as a DMO. In this session, hear real life case studies that demonstrate how you can transform your biggest naysayers into your biggest cheerleaders.
