  • Develop destination-based products that are in concert with Eastern Oregon's natural environment, support the stewardship of the state's resources and its rich history 
  • Tie into or enhance one of EOVA's marketing and development pillars: Outdoor, Cultural & Heritage, Agritourism.
  • Provide strategic industry professional development and training opportunities
