Victorian Tourism Industry Council is the peak advocacy body for the tourism industry in Victoria. Tourism North East maintains membership and attends their quarterly policy and advocacy setting discussions. This allows TNE to table issues that might have state-wide implications that have been highlighted within our region. Industry operators are able to sign up for VTIC membership also if they feel it is appropriate.
VTIC's website contains information on their activities and policy priorities.
Outdoors Victoria (OV) is the peak body for all Outdoor activities in Victoria. It exists to support the Outdoors Community, to advocate the benefits of outdoor activity to the broader community. Tourism North East maintains membership to OV and engages with them regularly as it recognises the strong connection between nature based tourism in our region and the outdoors community. OV's website outlines more of their policy positions. Industry operators are able to sign up for OV's newsletter and can take membership also if felt appropriate.
