Tourism Town Hall Meetings

Join our 2024 Community Town Hall Meetings: Shaping the Future of Western Montana Together

After holding town halls and listening sessions throughout the eight counties of Western Montana in 2021, we are excited to announce that starting in January 2024, we plan to initiate a series of community town hall meetings across Flathead, Glacier, Lake, Lincoln, Mineral, Missoula, Ravalli and Sanders counties. The purpose of the meetings is to discuss the Glacier Country Destination Stewardship Plan and to gather resident input on challenges, opportunities and strategies for the community regarding visitors and tourism. These town hall meetings are not just a chance to listen but an opportunity to be heard. Your insights, experiences and suggestions are invaluable to us.

The 2021 Tourism Town Hall meetings have taken place. View feedback on the Updates + Resources page.


Residents were invited to share their hopes, concerns and ideas in an engaging Tourism Town Hall led by tourism experts who specialize in helping destinations deliver sustainable growth while building stronger communities.

We held both in-person and virtual meetings for each county in Glacier Country. These meetings were held to learn more about ways Western Montana's Glacier Country can listening and engage with tourism stakeholders, outfitters, land managers, civic leaders and residents to create the Destination Stewardship Plan.
