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.”

The Oklahoma Travel Industry Association will partner with Lt. Governor Matt Pinnell to produce the 2019 Lt. Governor's Travel & Tourism Summits, which will be held around the state. Each half-day program provides tourism education featuring speakers covering a range of topics on best practices to promote tourism in your region, and includes a townhall-type discussion by the Lt. Governor on tourism development in each of the areas visited around the state.
Delegates from the Oklahoma Travel Industry Association met with U.S. Senator James Lankford in Washington D.C. regarding travel and tourism issues during the U.S. Travel Association's Destination Capitol Hill. The event brings travel leaders from across the country to educate policymakers about the power of travel. The program combines a legislative day on Capitol Hill with advocacy training, guest speakers and peer-to-peer networking. Destination Capitol Hill provides delegates with an opportunity to learn about upcoming legislation that impacts travel, network with peers and meet with members of Congress to stress the importance of travel as an economic driver.
