AlaskaACT Wins Ketchikan's Golden Totem
The Alaska Alliance for Cruise Travel (AlaskaACT) was recognized for its leadership in the visitor industry by receiving the 2010 Ketchikan Visitors Bureau's Golden Totem Award. This award is presented to an individual or business organization who has demonstrated outstanding leadership, new ideas and cooperative efforts in working with Ketchikan's visitor industry. The award was presented at the Annual Ketchikan Visitors Bureau Awards Banquet held in Ketchikan at the Ted Ferry Civic Center. "We are grateful for being recognized," said Bob Berto, President of AlaskaACT. "Our steering committee worked closely with the Ketchikan Visitors Bureau and their support has been greatly appreciated. It means a lot to receive this award from such a well established organization like the Ketchikan Visitors Bureau."
Last year, AlaskaACT worked with the Ketchikan Visitors Bureau and its members, as well as several other organizations, to help reduce the statewide cruise ship head tax. "The Ketchikan Visitors Bureau and its members were instrumental in helping to reduce the statewide tax," Berto said.
