County Tourism Commission funding proposals due Friday

The County Tourism Commission will hold its fourth-quarter meeting at the Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center at 1 p.m. Monday, Nov. 3.

Groups interested in receiving funding for tourism-related projects should have their funding requests to Mary Jo Coulehan at the Chamber by Friday, Oct. 24.

Since the County Tourism Commission meets only once a quarter, and the next meeting will not be held until February of 2009, groups interested in marketing their events for the winter or early spring should be aware of the deadline.

A narrative of the event, the use of the granted monies, and an income and expense synopsis is required. A representative for the group should be in attendance to present the request at the commission meeting.

Call Coulehan at 264-2360 with any questions, to submit your request and to receive a time for presentation of a proposal.

Funding for events administered by the County Tourism Commission comes from lodging tax dollars collected in Archuleta County.
