              MELINDA  HUNTLEY OF OHIO TRAVEL

Melinda Huntley serves as the Executive Director of the Ohio Travel Association, the only statewide trade association representing all tourism industry sectors. Representing Ohio's $43 billion tourism industry, the Ohio Travel Association makes Ohio's tourism businesses stronger, better prepared and more profitable through unifying the voice of the industry for legislative advocacy, providing professional development opportunities and training, and connecting buyers and sellers with events such as the Heartland Travel Showcase.

 

Her responsibilities include using research, education, and communications to address tourism issues and opportunities for Ohio’s $10 billion coastal tourism industry. In addition to creating new products, such as the Lake Erie Birding Trail, efforts also included assisting communities in preserving and identifying their unique features, as well as improving the visitor experience. Since 2006, helped secure more than $5 million for community improvement partner projects throughout the national scenic byway.

 

She led partnership efforts to achieve national scenic byway status from the Federal Highway Administration. This involved developing a regional vision and strategies through reaching out to more than 11,500 local residents and business owners along the 260-mile route.
