"I am such a firm believer in OTIA! We are a family working together to promote the richness of our state. Our education and networking provide the framework for delivering the right message to the right people at the right time. OTIA is where we learn best practices in marketing, social media, tourism development, community relations, etc. Together we have a voice in state government. As Mother Teresa said, 'I can do things you cannot, you can do things I cannot; together we can do great things.'"
