White Mountain Attractions Association would like to invite eligible GSA volunteers for a free tour of New Hampshire's most popular tourism region – on the 2018 White Mountains Educational Tour!

Eligibility: Must not have done this tour in past 2 years. This is a 4 day/night commitment.

Requirements reduced: Any active GSA (last shift volunteered within in 2018) with over 50 hours can sign-up to attend.

This free, fully-escorted tour is designed for information specialists who work directly with the public at Welcome Centers, Chambers of Commerce, regional associations AAA Offices and other selected venues. The 2018 tour will be Monday - Thursday, June 18-21, 2018. 

You will learn first-hand about the 17 White Mountains Attractions and the region that is so popular with our visitors.

This White Mountains Educational Tour is sponsored by the White Mountains Attractions Association, and is designed to help you learn about, and experience for yourself, the natural and man-made attractions in the region. 

A detailed itinerary and other information concerning the trip will be sent to participants later in May.

As in the past, the WMAA will cover the cost of admissions, receptions, meals, transportation and lodging during the tour. You will be responsible for gratuities (an estimate will be provided).

We look forward to having you with us on this fun and educational opportunity!

Sincerely,

Mikey Duprey
