A strong, healthy tourism industry is vital to Galveston — and to the state as a whole. It takes advocacy and leadership on the state level to help make sure the industry continues to grow.

That’s where the Texas Travel Industry Association (TTIA) comes in. TTIA is a nonprofit organization made up of businesses, organizations, associations and individuals dedicated to developing Texas tourism to its fullest potential. Its mission is to improve the quality of life in Texas by strengthening travel and tourism. Galveston is fortunate to have two of its own tourism leaders serving on its board of directors.

Mary Beth Bassett is the public relations coordinator for the Galveston Island Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Park Board of Trustees.
