Commerce Secretary Appoints New Travel and Tourism Advisory Board

Over 30 tourism industry leaders will offer counsel to the department.

Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo appointed 32 new leaders to the Travel and Tourism Advisory Board this past week, to advise the tourism policies of the Department of Commerce for the next year. The group is made up of notable leaders from both the public and private sectors, including Airbnb’s CEO Brian Chesky, Tripadvisor’s CEO Matt Goldberg, and Port of Seattle Commissioner Fed Felleman.

“Travel and tourism returned with force in 2022 as we opened up our country once again to visitors from around the globe,” said Secretary Raimondo. “The U.S. Travel and Tourism Advisory Board plays a vital role in providing expert recommendations and industry insight to optimize the American travel experience. I look forward to working with new and returning members.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Raimondo as she assembles the advisory board.
  • For wisdom for members as they offer recommendations to the Commerce Department.
