Day-to-day work entails equal parts general administrative/project coordination and research support/database administration duties, including providing assistance with the execution and publication of research studies conducted either in-house or through contractors. These research projects include, but are not limited to, visitor behaviors, tourism industry trends, and residents’ perceptions of tourism. The outcome of these studies are translated into decisions and tactics that align with the agency’s strategic plan and goals.
