Missoula, Montana, November 17, 2016 — U.S. Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx has announced the inaugural members of the National Advisory Committee on Travel and Tourism Infrastructure (NACTTI). Adventure Cycling Association’s Executive Director, Jim Sayer, is one of the 25 appointees in a group that includes 13 members of the U.S. Travel Association such as Ms. Cathy Ritter, Director, Colorado Tourism Office, and Mr. Todd Davidson, Chief Executive Officer, Travel Oregon.

The National Advisory Committee on Travel and Tourism Infrastructure was established in last year’s Surface Transportation Bill to facilitate travel and tourism. The NACTTI will assist the U.S. Department of Transportation and advise the Secretary of Transportation on current and emerging priorities, issues, projects, and funding needs relating to the use of the intermodal transportation network of the U.S.

“Adventure Cycling congratulates all of the transportation, travel, and tourism professionals and leaders appointed to NACTTI,” said Lisa McKinney, Adventure Cycling Association’s Communications Director. “Adventure Cycling looks forward to continually working with government leaders as an adviser and conduit to partners in tourism, multi-modal travel providers, active travel organizations, and state and local organizations that are helping build bicycle tourism across the nation.”
