Glacier Country's Destination Stewardship Strategy Plan was a community-driven process. As the strategy was developed, hundreds of regional stakeholders from over 75+ communities in 8 counties were actively included in the process through a variety of engagements including 1:1 interviews, tourism town hall meetings, resident and stakeholder surveys, and focus groups. If you are interested in learning more about the process or would like to be involved in the implementation of the strategy, please contact Racene Friede, President CEO at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The objective of the process was to engage the many diverse stakeholders who collectively comprise the tourism ecosystem in Glacier Country to identify and prioritize opportunities that will balance tourism growth with the long-term health and vibrancy of our communities.
Glacier Country Tourism's Board of Directors and Stewardship Steering Committee took what we learned from our communities and created a long-term strategy that aligns with and complements existing community plans and initiatives. This strategic plan is about our communities and how we can work together toward common goals now and well into the future.
We actively invited individuals to engage in surveys, town hall meetings and focus groups. The Destination Stewardship Plan team worked to ensure our efforts were geographically representative of the Glacier Country region.
