Committees & Councils
Since VISIT FLORIDA was created in 1996, being an industry-driven organization has been its greatest asset. The best and brightest minds in Florida tourism have helped guide the operations of VISIT FLORIDA to make it the pre-eminent model on how the private and public sectors can successfully work together in support of destination marketing.
What is the purpose of Committees & Councils?
VISIT FLORIDA's Board of Directors established committees and councils to enhance and maximize industry input toward fulfilling VISIT FLORIDA's commitment to being "industry-led."
Who usually serves on a Council?
Council members are volunteers dedicated to putting the industry above their own interests as they interact with VISIT FLORIDA's staff. VISIT FLORIDA Partners, including some of the industry's foremost experts, serve on the committees, which meet on a regular basis to recommend strategic actions.
Audit and Finance Committee members are comprised of Board and former Board members.
How long is the term for serving on a Council?
Council members are appointed annually running congruently with our fiscal year from July 1 - June 30.
What is the time commitment for a Council?
The councils typically meet a total of four times per year; three times are virtual and one time is in-person at the February Board Meeting.
