  • Supporting the development and implementation of the marketing plan
  • Supporting the marketing strategies of the WV Division of Tourism where appropriate
  • Cultivating a world-class travel and tourism industry through creation of jobs, stimulation of investment, expansion of current tourism businesses and promotion of a positive image, thereby improving the way of life for citizens of Mountaineer Country

Our Vision

To make Mountaineer Country the region’s prime destination for travelers through the recruitment of groups, events and activities that enhance the quality of life in the community and establish the Visit Mountaineer Country CVB as the area’s primary resource for travel assistance.

Mission Statement
