The Oklahoma Travel Industry Association invites you to actively contribute in building a progressive and prosperous future for tourism in Oklahoma. Your support of the tourism industry, through OTIA membership, provides benefits and training for tourism-related businesses and citizens throughout Oklahoma. It also helps us monitor and protect tourism industry interests at the state capitol and nationally through our affiliation with the U.S. Travel Association.
“Being a member of OTIA provides the Duncan CVB not only with 'top notch' tourism education and a powerful, united legislative voice, it provides a support system of people who are passionate about Oklahoma tourism and its success at a grass roots level. It is not a question of should you belong to this association, but rather a question of why wouldn’t you? I encourage all tourism industry professionals to take advantage what OTIA offers.”

As you may be aware, the White House released its much-anticipated infrastructure proposal on February 12, which sets the stage for action on Capitol Hill. Improving and modernizing our nation's travel infrastructure is a long-held priority that U.S. Travel shares with many elected officials. A summary of the administration's proposal is available here, and an outline of several travel-related provisions can be found here.
The hospitality industry is the driving force in Oklahoma’s economy, generating enormous tax revenues, providing jobs for hundreds of thousands of Oklahomans, and giving time and money back to their communities. OTIA members recently visited with legislators to show them the economic impact our industry has on the state and distributed an Oklahoma Hospitality Industry "At a Glance" leave-behind.
