Help Us Grow SLAA!
Positive testimonials and word of mouth marketing from current members are one of the best ways for us to get the word out about the benefits of joining the Saint Louis Attractions Association (SLAA). Please be sure to share your positive SLAA experiences with others. If you know someone who would benefit from being a member of SLAA, please let the Membership Committee know. They would be happy to reach out to any prospective members to help them learn more about our great organization. To reach the Membership Committee, please contact Jen Hollenkamp or Monietta Slay.

Submit Your Nominations for the Spirit of St. Louis Awards!
The Spirit of St. Louis Awards recognizes programs and individuals that exemplify the spirit of hospitality and have a positive impact on the tourism industry in St. Louis. Winners will be announced at the May 2020 meeting. This has been pushed back to avoid trying to submit nominations during the busy holiday season at the end of the year. Winners will receive a plaque and free admission to the SLAA auction the following November. Nominations are accepted year round.

Eligible nominees may have served in any variety of positions, ranging from front-line service to management, at an attraction, hotel, restaurant, or with any other associated or affiliated industry. Both members and non-members of SLAA are eligible to receive awards; however, nominations must be submitted by a SLAA member. You are welcome to make unlimited nominations. Click here to submit your nomination.

Thank You!
Thank you to our speakers, Debbie Marshall of PNC Bank, Sherri Cliffe of Cliffedge Marketing, Katie Brandenberg of the St. Louis Cardinals, and Carrie Hutchcraft of The Magic House, St. Louis Children's Museum for the insight on Partnerships. We would also like to thank our sponsor Madden Media, and our host Anheuser-Busch Tour Center & Biergarten for the delicious lunch. We look forward to our next meeting on July 17th at Fast Lane Classic Cars with the Carole Moody Scholarship Presentation and Networking!
