The Marianas Visitors Authority welcomes new and returning members for the new fiscal year beginning Oct. 1, 2021.
Businesses, organizations, and individuals are welcome to join the state tourism agency for $100 a year. Accounts can be registered and paid on MVA’s English website at www.mymarianas.com.
“The Marianas Visitors Authority welcomes all parties interested in working to rebuild and strengthen the Marianas tourism economy,” said MVA managing director Priscilla M. Iakopo. “Now more than ever, we see the integral relationship between community and tourism. Our community has played an important role in keeping the Marianas safe during the worldwide COVID-19 crisis, and because of that, we can now begin to put more people back to work and generate necessary government revenue as we slowly rebuild tourism. Tourism is everybody’s business, and we look forward to building on that in fiscal year 2022.”
The MVA currently has 93 members. Benefits of membership include business listing on the MVA’s language-specific websites in Korean, Japanese, Chinese (traditional and simplified), and English; opportunities for business brochure distribution at MVA offices in the Marianas and internationally; opportunities to participate in travel and trade shows, sales seminars, and familiarization tours; detailed visitor data through monthly statistics reports; nomination and voting rights for the MVA board of directors; the opportunity to be a supplier or contractor for the MVA; and the opportunity to serve on ad hoc committees.
