NYSH&TA ended it’s last stint of Legislative Roundtable Discussions on June 4 in the 1000 Islands. Throughout the course of the 11 events held all over the state there were overall more than 700 attendees and 70 elected officials and/or staff. 

The Legislative Roundtable Discussions provided a forum for tourism industry leaders to meet with state and local elected officials to discuss important issues pertaining to the tourism industry, which in turn advanced the hospitality industry’s local and statewide legislative agendas.

NYSH&TA would like to thank all of our co-sponsors who helped make these events possible:
