Stillman appointed to state's Tourism Council

You may know her as a Door County business owner, but now you’ll have Denise Stillman representing you and other Wisconsinites on the Wisconsin Council of Tourism. This month Stillman was appointed by Governor Tony Evers to a council position. She says she was still surprised even though she knew there was a chance she’d be selected. 


Stillman had heard rumblings at the beginning of 2021 that the Tourism Council was moving to term limits and getting new people on it. The Wisconsin Hotel and Lodging Association, which Stillman spent years serving on including as the chair, recommended her for a position on the council. By February Stillman was filling out paperwork and did a phone interview with the Tourism Council’s acting secretary, Anne Sayers.  


A main reason Stillman feels she’s a good fit for the board was that she'll be the only lodging operator, adding variety to the current council and the other reason is her Door County background.



Stillman acknowledges the importance of understanding issues other tourist areas around the state face. 



The first council meeting that Stillman will be a part of is on October 14th. Stillman is a Co-Owner of Parkwood Lodge and Foremost Management.
