VISIT FLORIDA’s Board of Directors established committees to enhance and maximize industry input toward fulfilling VISIT FLORIDA’s commitment to being “industry-led.”  With this being said, Madeira Beach has two voices on committees to fully represent our beaches.

Missy H. Hahn, president of the Treasure Island & Madeira Beach Chamber of Commerce, was appointed to the Industry Relations committee of Visit Florida, effective August 1.

The Industry Relations Committee is Visit Florida’s primary source of feedback on matters related to communication and engagement among businesses involved in the Tourism industry. It aids in developing partnerships among these businesses, and encourages participation in activities designed to increase tourism. The committee also works to improve customer relationship management.

     “I am honored by this appointment,” said Hahn, “and proud that the Treasure Island and Madeira Beach Chamber of Commerce is recognized for its dedication to Florida’s tourism industry. Tourism is our state’s primary economic driver, one that supports our state economy and provides visitors  one of the most attractive destinations in the world.”

Sonny Flynn, president of the John’s Pass Village Association and Co-Owner of the Alligator Attraction, was appointed to the Promotions Committee of Visit Florida, effective August 1.

The Promotions Committee provides input on strategic matters related to VISIT FLORIDA’s consumer promotions programs, from sweepstakes on to promotions with media partners on a market-specific, regional, and national basis.

“I am honored to be appointed this year to serve VISIT FLORIDA on the Promotions Committee,” says Flynn.  “The Tourism Industry is valuable to our state and local economy and I am looking forward to more great work at the State level.”
