Want to help stimulate the local economy? Become a Community Ambassador.
Smithfield & Isle of Wight Tourism is pleased to offer a program to stimulate local economic prosperity-The Community Ambassador Program (CAP). The Tourism Bureau is asking community leaders and local citizens to bring the groups they belong to, to Smithfield and Isle of Wight for meetings, conferences, workshops, etc. to support local businesses.
Smithfield & Isle of Wight Director of Tourism, Judy Winslow, explains, “Almost everyone in this community belongs to an organization – a sorority, a civic or social club, a community assistance organization, a work-related association, a church group, a special interest group, etc. We’d like our local citizens to extend the invitation for those groups to meet here in Smithfield and Isle of Wight. We’d like them to stay in our local accommodations, meet in our local conference center, eat in our local restaurants and shop in our locally owned shops. This is a wonderful way to help your neighbor, bring dollars into local coffers and share our community pride.”
Our ambassadors will be recognized during our National Tourism Month celebration in May.
Email Judy Winslow, Director of Tourism, with your group’s contact information, potential dates they will be visiting, group size, and any other relevant information. Tourism staff will be delighted to help you handle these many details and logistics.
Congratulations to our 2018 Community Ambassadors and Hospitality Heroes honored at our National Tourism Month celebration on May 8, 2018.
