Fall meetings not to miss
It’s that time of year. The days have grown shorter, the temperatures are cooler and the crowds have gone home for the season. It’s time to slow down, take a breath and regroup. Just in time for this period of comparative calm, we’ve got a host of informative industry meetings to help Coast businesses prepare for next year. Here’s what not to miss this fall.
Travel Oregon and OCVA Stakeholder Sessions
Using input from Coast stakeholder meetings and surveys, OCVA created its strategic plan for the 2019-21 biennium and presented it to the Oregon Tourism Commission in June. In November, OCVA will host a meeting in each Coast region to report back to stakeholders about final strategic plans.
“The Oregon Coast stakeholder meeting will provide stakeholders with an opportunity to understand and get involved in the tourism ecosystem,” said Kate Sappell, Travel Oregon Program project manager. “They’ll hear directly from OCVA on the tourism vision for the region, local opportunities and how their representative voices can be a part of the process.”
“It’s a great opportunity for people to access what OCVA does, understand the variety of our projects, and get aligned with what we are doing,” says Arica Sears, OCVA Destination Management Coordinator. “The strategic plan is based on their stakeholder surveys, so we are implementing what they want to do.”

Oregon South Coast Regional Tourism Network (OSCRTN) meeting will follow the South Coast Stakeholder session. Julie Miller, South Coast Network Manager, says much of the OSCRTN meeting will focus on the OCVA strategic biennium plan.
“We will have a segment on the (OSCRTN) and how it functions and then provide a round table where all those in attendance can share what is happening in their organization or community,” Miller says.
