What is the presidential advisory team for PA tourism?
The Pennsylvania Tourism Advisory Group was created in 2012 and is made up of experts in tourism and economic development.
The group provides advice to the governor, the legislature, tourism representatives and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.
It includes representatives from the Pennsylvania Chamber of Commerce, the Pennsylvania State Chamber of Industry and Commerce, Pennsylvania Tourism Development, and Tourism Development Partnerships.
The group also includes representatives of the Pennsylvania Hospital Association, the National Association of Manufacturers, the Association of Pennsylvania Landmarking and Landmark Management Companies, the State Association of Museums, the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Tourism and Tourism Services, and the Association for Business, Economic Development and Tourism of Pennsylvania.
The advisory team has provided advice to Pennsylvania governors in both the governor’s office and the legislature.
Governor Tom Wolf and the Democratic-led Senate have issued guidelines for the advisory team’s work, while Republicans have rejected the recommendations.
The governor’s committee, however, has not yet met.
