Tourism Advisory Council (TAC)

Tourism Advisory Council Strategic Plan 2013


The Meadowlands Liberty Convention and Visitors Bureau is the destination marketing division of the Chamber promoting the region and its assets to visitors and local residents.  The Tourism Advisory Council assists the MLCVB with growing this destination.  Members of the TAC must be an MLCVB member and work in the hospitality, attraction, amusement, catering/restaurant or tourism services industry.

Vision :  

MLCVB’s strategic plan is to increase its capabilities as the destination marketing organization for the Meadowlands Liberty region by expanding its diverse in-house capabilities for envisioning, developing and implementing programs that connect travelers to its tourism assets through its hotels, attractions/amusements, catering/restaurants and tourism services industries.  MLCVB represents its members and the region as a whole by delivering persuasive messaging and enticing programming to travelers and travel professionals.


The MLCVB mission is to promote the Meadowlands Liberty region as a tourism, sports, entertainment, business destination that will result in economic growth.   


Those serving as chairs of a TAC Committee should be a representative on the MRC Board of Directors  or have been an active participant for a minimum of one year.  Each must be able to commit their time to achieve the goals of its individual committee.  Each representative must possess good customer service standards, believe in the potential of the destination and put the visitor experience first.  Each chair or committee member must also be a member in good standing with the Chamber with regards to dues and invoices.
