How do I become a member of the Maine Tourism Association?
If you haven't already signed up for membership, you can find the sign-up form here!
What is the annual renewal process?
Our membership is billed on a rolling basis. You will automatically get invoiced for membership and marketing opportunities in the Maine State Visitor Information Centers you opt for the same time each year unless you tell us otherwise.
If I don’t place brochures in the Visitor Centers will I still have a presence in them?
Yes! We have digital kiosks available in four of the Maine State Visitor Information Centers: Kittery, Yarmouth, Hampden North, and Houlton. We also have one in the Kennebunk North Rest Stop. These digital kiosks will feature your listing from our website and allow visitors to send information from the kiosks directly to their mobile device. Our travel counselors also do an excellent job recommending all of our member-partners to visitors even if they do not have brochures in our centers.
Also, if you do not want to print multiple brochures, you can print just one and we will place it behind the plexiglass on the brochure racks with a QR code directing visitors to your website for more information.
Who should I contact if I have questions regarding membership?
Please contact our Membership and Events Manager, Erin Laskey, with any questions. Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org or call (207) 623-5644
