Thirteen U.S. Travel Members Appointed to National Advisory Committee on Travel and Tourism Infrastructure
November 11, 2016 1:52pm
WASHINGTON (November 11, 2016)—U.S. Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx has announced the inaugural members of the National Advisory Committee on Travel and Tourism Infrastructure (NACTTI)—and 13 of the 25 appointees are members of the U.S. Travel Association. They include:
The NACTTI, established by last year's surface transportation bill, will assist the U.S. Department of Transportation in developing policy recommendations and strategies to improve travel infrastructure and mobility.
"Having the voice of travel leaders at the table will enable the country to better craft its infrastructure priorities for maximum benefit to both the economy and travelers," said U.S. Travel Association President and CEO Roger Dow. "Congratulations to the U.S. Travel Association members who have been appointed to the NACTTI. Our organization looks forward to continually working with government leaders to keep travelers moving."
Dow added his personal thanks to Secretary Foxx for appointing travel leaders to the committee, and to travel champions in Congress for supporting the creation of the NACTTI.
Advancing measures that enhance our country's travel infrastructure is one of the main objectives in U.S. Travel's strategic plan. During congressional negotiations on the FAST Act, U.S. Travel strongly advocated for the formation of the NACTTI and other measures that encourage federal and local transportation officials to consider the travel and tourism sector when developing long-term transportation improvement plans.
