Algoma is one of only two cities in the region to receive a tourism assessment from the Wisconsin Department of Tourism this year. A recently formed task force is working on the details of the program. Kay Smith, executive director of the Algoma Area Chamber of Commerce, shares how the six-month process will play out.
Algoma is hosting the annual meeting of the Wisconsin Harbor Towns Association later this year. That organization consists of 18 towns located on the water ranging from Racine to Bayfield.
*Clarification: There are four Regional Directors for the Department of Tourism. Each region conducts two assessments per year. Statewide will see 8-10 completed during 2020. This article previously said that two assessments would be completed in the entire state.
