Annual updates keep TBMP guidelines relevant
Input from stakeholders is key to TBMP's success
The process of updating the TBMP Guidelines document begins each year in January with a request that members of Juneau's visitor industry, TBMP, and the City and Borough of Juneau review and provide input into any additions, changes, or corrections to be made to the guidelines for the new year. Once the new document is completed, copies are distributed throughout the area and provided to each TBMP member company. The current document is also posted on websites and is available via email to anyone requesting it.
