ROGER ON THE ROAD

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THE DDA

"Your ongoing resources will always be valuable to me, and to other destinations who need to educate board members and stakeholders. Now if I could only get them to sit down to view some of your videos, we would be all set! Past boards have adopted many of your principles, and it is my goal to do the same with this current one. Thank you again for your knowledgeable response. You've made my job much easier!"

-Mary Anne Baker, Executive Director, Swain County Tourism Development, Bryson City, North Carolina
