TENTATIVE: “Defending Yourself Against Political Attacks”
A panel of state/local organizations will discuss legislative issues, how they are messaging around community benefits, how future legislation will affect them, etc. They will discuss what has been happening in terms of attacks on tourism (both from the far right and the far left). Stress the impact to budgets, etc. and draw out some successful strategies for dealing with this. This future-oriented session will advocate for tourism.
