Unified Destination Marketing Committee - City of Galena

Unified Destination Marketing Committee

At the October 13, 2015 city council meeting, a new committee was appointed to discuss the possibility of creating a new destination marketing organization that would encompass the City of Galena and Jo Daviess County.  The three person committee was directed to meet with a special committee of the Jo Daviess County Board appointed for the same purpose.  You may contact the City of Galena committee members via email by clicking on their names below.

On February 23, 2016, a Letter of Intent was executed by the City of Galena, Jo Daviess County, VisitGalena.org and the Jo Daviess County Convention and Visitors Bureau.  The Letter of Intent sets forth the intent of the parties to transition to a single destination marketing organization in Jo Daviess County.  The Letter of Intent also sets forth the process, terms and conditions of the transition.  View the letter of intent by clicking 2016 Letter of Intent below.
