NTA’s Fifth Annual Grassroots Symposium Currently Underway

Special Advisor to President Bush Tim Goeglein will kick off the 5th Annual NTA Grassroots Symposium, scheduled Feb. 23-25 in Washington, D.C.

Goeglein met with NTA President Hank Phillips, CTP and 2003 NTA Chairman Charlie McIlvain, CTP, last year to discuss tourism security issues and will give this year’s Symposium attendees an insider’s view of the White House.

National Park Service Director Fran Mainella also will address participants and discuss the search for a new NPS Tourism Director and current projects impacting members utilizing NPS sites.

Elected officials Rep. Ernest Istook (R-Okla.), Rep. Jim Oberstar (D-Minn.) and Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) also have been invited to participate.

The Symposium would not be possible without the generous support of NTA member sponsors New World Bus, Jones Lang Lasalle, Spirit Cruises, Phillips Seafood Restaurant and the Sheraton Four Points Downtown.
