Tourism Ambassadors

Travel Lane County’s Tourism Ambassador award recognizes the partnership Travel Lane County has with each chamber of commerce in the region.

Our chamber partners know their community better than anyone and each year we ask them to select an individual, business or organization that exemplifies the unmatchable hospitality locals and visitors experience every day.
