OCVA and Public Affairs
As the Regional Destination Management Organization for the entire Oregon Coast, it’s our privilege and responsibility to work on behalf of tourism industry partners coastwide.
Our public affairs work includes monitoring opportunities and challenges within our industry; monitoring the economic impact of tourism for our communities; tracking bills and advocating for tourism in the Oregon state legislature; communicating the value of tourism to coastal communities and stakeholders; and sharing information and resources with our industry partners.
