Visitor Information Center In-service Meetings
Be part of this monthly meeting often to educate Visit Anchorage's volunteers and staff who work in the VICs - the folks on the front lines assist as many as 1,300 visitors a day. Members are given 5-10 minutes to speak to the group and are encouraged to bring handouts, samples or door prizes. Presentation slots are limited. Contact one of the Visitor Services Managers to check availability.
Held quarterly, this presentation is great for new members as well as those who may have new employees not yet familiar with Visit Anchorage's benefits. It's also an opportunity to get to know staff and find out which leads and marketing promotions best suit your business.
