We live in a very unique area, which makes our task of promoting the Bluegrass Region a joy. We also enjoy the opportunity to work with some of the most dedicated and talented tourism and hospitality sales professionals in the country. Our goal as an association is to provide valuable resources to our members throughout the year.

If you are a current member I hope to see you at our next meeting. If you are a potential member I welcome you to our association and look forward to meeting you!

Our Board of Directors continues to create valuable educational and networking sessions for our monthly membership meetings. Please join us at an upcoming luncheon to learn more about BTMA and how membership will benefit you and your tourism and hospitality organization or business! I guarantee you'll take away some great information and make new contacts from the hospitality industry that will be invaluable to you.


Best Regards,
