The previous Tourism Board worked for a year and a half to define its goals and chart a path forward only to have the Common Council reject the outcome of its efforts. That Tourism Board was made up of people from Hudson's business and arts community with experience and expertise in cultural planning and strategic planning.
At Tuesday night's Common Council meeting, Alderman Calvin Lewis (Third Ward), who will chair the new Tourism Board, announced that he was "working with the mayor's office to develop a vision for the Tourism Board." He invited "people who have a passion for Hudson, have a commitment to Hudson, and are looking to advance local business and find a common ground between the community and tourism" to consider joining the Tourism Board.
The mayor appoints four members, and the Common Council appoints four members. Anyone interested in becoming part of the new Tourism Board should contact the mayor's office firstname.lastname@example.org and/or Lewis email@example.com to make their interest known.
