Tourism Group Gathers One Last Time

Lynchburg’s tourism board met for the last time yesterday. The current management agreement between the city and the Lynchburg Regional Chamber of Commerce concludes at the end of the month. The tourism board will be reestablished under a new structure. The decision to take the program in-house came about after negotiations to renew the contract failed amid disagreements over financial terms and other commitments. According to the News & Advance, the city is launching an internal tourism department on Jan. 1. Current tourism staffers have been offered jobs with the city.
