Visitor for the Day

The UMVRDC highly encourages Chambers, EDAs, City/County staff to participate in a “Visitor for the Day” campaign. Participate by giving a tour of your community’s unique assets, events, and lifestyle through the lens of a Go-Pro or smart phone. UMVRDC staff will use the footage to develop a short video clip that can be used for online marketing of the region. We will be collecting footage through the spring. For questions regarding the Visitor for the Day Campaign please contact Melissa at

Working to enable the region to thrive through assisting local government.
