About the Tourism Regional Board Program:
The New Mexico Tourism Department launched the Tourism Region Board program over a decade ago, and it has innovated over time. Today, the purpose of the Tourism Region Boards is to systematically and effectively champion regional strategies to increase visitation and enhance the visitor experience.
The Tourism Region Board program is governed by bylaws established by the Tourism Cabinet Secretary. The Tourism Cabinet Secretary appoints board members and sets the annual action plan. There is one board for each of the six geographical regions of New Mexico (Southwest, Southeast, Central, Northeast, North Central, Northwest). The volunteer, working board members represent the various tourism sectors within a given region, which include but are not limited to Destination Marketing Organizations, Chambers of Commerce, Hotels and Lodging, Outdoor Recreation, Tribal Governments, Tourism Attractions, Tour Operators and Transportation.
