2018 Quarter 3 Interim Lodging Tax Report

The RACC Board of Directors is happy to share our third quarter report. We are excited by the progress that continues to be made at the organization. It has been a busy and exciting two months since our last report. Much of our attention has focused on our annual golf tournament, which was redesigned in 2017, with all net proceeds now being returned directly to the business community.

This year the funding is be directed towards a new youth apprenticeship program that will support both our youth and business community in the short and long-term. Read the 2018 3rd Quarter Report.
