In 2020, NTBA staff and board of directors came together to refresh its strategic plan. The NTBA determined that a shortterm strategic plan refresh was the best approach for the organization given shifting circumstances, including efforts to develop a Tourism Business Improvement District (TBID) and the rapidly evolving context surrounding the COVID 19 pandemic.
Through a collaborative process, the staff and the board worked to define the future direction, purpose, and vision for the organization over the next two years. The group used the 2016-2020 strategic plan as a foundation, while considering past accomplishments, regional economic and planning trends, and exciting opportunities for the future.
