The Thurston Tourism Ambassador Program teaches hospitality professionals and community members best practices and ensures that they understand their important role in increasing tourism.
The Thurston Tourism Ambassador Program is not a class. It’s a training for a nationally-recognized certification. Individuals who complete the program are called Certified Tourism Ambassadors (CTAs.) The program has a multi-faceted curriculum that serves to increase tourism by inspiring hospitality professionals and community members to turn every visitor encounter into a positive experience. CTAs learn about what there is to see and do in Thurston County and experience these places first-hand so that they can refer not only visitors but their own customers, friends and family to them. Tourism starts with positive word-of-mouth!
