Without You, It Doesn't Happen.
The state’s tourism industry continues to amaze us by helping the Arkansas Tourism Development Foundation raise scholarship funds to aid students seeking careers in hospitality and tourism management. In 2015, more than $75,000 was generated from conference delegates bidding on items ranging from weekend getaways to notable resorts, artwork, handmade jewelry, electronics, food and wine, and one-of-a-kind parties, to name a few. Not only are these dollars invested in the future leaders of our industry but the funds also help defray conference expenses.
Each year, we are challenged to do better than the last and 2016 is no different. We are all responsible for educating the young people who will one day shoulder the important tasks of providing first-class accommodations, award-winning cuisine and exceptional customer service to Arkansas visitors. Now, that's something worth your investment!
