 WASHINGTON, D.C. - June 23-25, 2020

The STS Congressional Summit on Travel & Tourism is advocacy in action.  More Voices = More Impact.

STS members come together in Washington D.C. and, as a state, meet with their elected officials to discuss legislation that could positively or negatively impact their destinations and visitors.  Prior to these meetings, STS provides attendees with a list of talking points, and topic-related guest speakers, so attendees have all the tools they need for a successful visit with their elected officials.

Contact your STS Congressional State Chair - a fellow STS member - for more details about your state.
