Clackamas County’s Tourism Development Council seeks members

The Clackamas County Board of Commissioners is seeking citizens to fill two upcoming vacancies on the Tourism Development Council (TDC). The TDC guides tourism programs funded through the county's Transient Room Tax (TRT). TDC members are appointed by the Board of County Commissioners and are authorized to oversee tourism promotion and development in Clackamas County.

Commissioners are looking for applicants with a current affiliation with a lodging property located within the county. Those with a broad perspective and strong interest in implementing an energized and comprehensive tourism program for the county will be the most desirable candidates. The TDC is comprised of nine members, appointed to a three year term.

Board members reflect and represent the diverse population of the county.

The TDC currently meets the second Monday of the month from 2- 4 pm, generally at county headquarters located in Oregon City.

The TDC develops, adopts, and implements, subject to the Board of County Commission's approval, a Tourism 5-Yr Master Plan. They also develop an annual Business Plan to address tourism promotion and development, visitor information services, and special events and festivals in Clackamas County as described in the county's Transient Room Tax Ordinance, approved by voters in 1992. Currently county TRT collections are approximately $4 million annually.
