New Market Tax Credits – Creating Economic Health and Prosperity

New Market Tax Credits – Creating Economic Health and Prosperity

Many tribal communities find themselves isolated and underdeveloped, unable to build and support a local economy that can provide the needed jobs and services for economic prosperity. New Markets Tax Credits (NMTC) is a tool that can help tribal communities develop the key community projects that lack the needed capital to move forward. This webinar will introduce the use of NMTC for your project and unlock the possibilities of growth and expansion for job development and the expansion of key goods and services in tribal communities.

Collecting and Understanding Tourism Data

Collecting and Understanding Tourism Data

Within the competitive hospitality industry, investing time and resources in collecting accurate visitor data can help significantly improve the customer experience by aligning programming with traveler expectations. Equally importantly, collecting tourism data can help ensure community expectations align within the larger tourism infrastructure and tourism data can also help justify marketing efforts with tribal leadership and local and national elected officials. In this webinar, Daniel Nāho’opi’i (Kanaka Maoli, Native Hawaiian) tourism data expert and former Director of Tourism Research for the Hawai‘i Tourism Authority, discusses why quantifiable tourism data should be a part of any visitor marketing plan.
