Tourism Advisory Committee
About the Tourism Advisory Committee
The Tourism Advisory Committee is an official, Board of Supervisors appointed committee that serves in an advisory capacity for the Tourism community to the Tourism Manager, County Administrator, and Board of Supervisors.  The Committee works with and makes recommendations on matters pertaining to advertising, target marketing, and long-range plans for tourism in Orange County.  This Committee also investigates, researches, and reports on the feasibility of adoption or implementation of ideas and initiatives to further the County's tourism efforts and increase tax revenues and visitation numbers.

The mission statement of the Orange County Tourism Advisory Committee is to inform and engage all tourism sectors and the community, creating a unified, dynamic consortium that increases tourism in Orange County for the benefit of the entire community.

The Tourism Advisory Committee is an advisory board, not a policy board.  Therefore, it can make recommendations, but not set policy.

Tourism Advisory Committee Meetings
Regular meetings of the Tourism Advisory Committee are held on the third Tuesday of every other month at 6:00 p.m. in the Conference Room of the Orange County Airport.
