A Letter from the CVB

April 6, 2017

Newton Convention & Visitors Bureau Partners,

It is a time of mixed and strong emotions for those involved with the Newton Convention & Visitors Bureau, including our nonprofit board, staff, attractions, properties and community partners. Due to the financial crisis we have encountered with the defunding of our organization by the City of Newton, we have decided to suspend the organization. We will fulfill our commitments for this year and see how the integrated marketing of tourism plays out for the city in the next year. The Newton CVB will disperse its funds according to its bylaws by June 30, 2019 if there hasn’t been a significant change to its funding. The board and staff have exhausted their energy and ideas on promoting the community without hotel/motel tax dollars and feel it is time to let the City of Newton market tourism, on their own.

Our partner, Hawkeye Stages will be keeping the Visitor Center open; it has been a great tourism draw.

Annette West, Interim Director can still be reached at 641-521-3433. The physical office will be closed on April 28, 2017.

Respectfully,

Margie Criswell, Board Chair

Newton Convention & Visitors Bureau
