Image and new product development are essential to building recovery. Collaboration among service providers is a challenge in this highly fragmented industry. There are small “mom and pop” businesses and major international corporations that need to network to develop the evolving image of each destination. I see my role as a facilitator as this developmental process unfolds.. My past experience with the “I love New York” Division of Tourism matching funds program and the development of the Travel and Tourism Associates degree curriculum at the State University of New York (SUNY) Rockland campus have given me valuable expertise and awareness of the intricacies involved in uniting Visitor Industry constituencies. It would be a privilege for me to collaborate with this rebuilding travel project.
