    2011 National Extension Tourism Conference

    Initiatives in Tourism Development—Contributing to Community Prosperity


    The Francis Marion Hotel

    Charleston, South Carolina

    March 9-11, 2011

    Dear Colleagues:


    Help us spread the word!  The 2011 National Extension Tourism (NET) Conference Program Committee invites proposals for the 2011 NET Conference, the theme of which is “Initiatives in Tourism Development—Contributing to Community Prosperity.”  Based on this theme, the Conference Program Committee is seeking proposals for oral presentations, poster presentations, and panel presentations/workshops in the following nine broad topical areas:


    1. Rural Tourism Development
    2. Community and Regional Planning and Development
    3. Economic, Environmental, and Social Impacts of Tourism and Recreation
    4. Agritourism
    5. Heritage and Cultural Tourism
    6. Nature-Based Tourism: Ecotourism, Wildlife Enterprises, Adventure Tourism
    7. Marketing and Promotion
    8. Tourism Research and Evaluation
    9. Tourism Education and Training


    The Program Committee encourages all proposal submitters to “connect” their work in tourism and recreation to the conference’s Community Prosperity Theme, and is calling for new presentations (previously unpublished) and/or projects in progress.  Please note: If a proposal is accepted for presentation at the conference, presenters must register for the conference.


    The deadline for proposal submission is November 5, 2010, with notification of submission status by December 3, 2010.  Please see the Proposal Submission Guidelines and Proposal Submission Cover Sheet for more information.
