The TTIA/Texas Tourism Foundation has established the Friends of
Travel program to give each of us an opportunity to give back to those
tourism partners that may need our assistance.
As you know, last summer's wildfires had a devastating impact on
Texas. The TTIA Texas Travel Summit is taking place at the Hyatt Regency Lost
Pines Resort this year, and we would like to take this opportunity to give
back and help the Bastrop State Park in its recovery by providing them with
some volunteer help the Saturday before Travel Summit. The event is currently
scheduled from 8:45am - 2:30pm.
