The Dripping Springs Visitors Bureau, the independent non-profit 501(c)3 organization, has recently formed a new Board of Directors to help further advance their mission of tourism in Dripping Springs.

“Our role is to make Dripping Springs a major tourist destination. Our task is to provide those who travel through Dripping Springs a reason to stop, shop, and stay in our city. We want Dripping Springs to be known as more than ‘Gateway to the Hill Country’—it is a destination,” Pam Owens, CEO/President of the Visitors Bureau said.

The Dripping Springs Visitors Bureau has become an independent non-profit 501(c)3 organization.  The Bureau, first established in 1984 and supported by the Chamber of Commerce, will now become a separate and independent organization.

Pam Owens, who has been the Bureau director since 2012, was named as President and CEO of the new non-profit.  Owens said the Bureau will be restructured to support the specific needs of area businesses who serve travel and tourism.

“We are extremely grateful to the Chamber who has always supported the Visitors Bureau even in its infancy, but the reality is the tourism business and the work of the Bureau has expanded beyond Dripping Springs. Now the Bureau will be in a position to provide a broader range of services and added support to more area businesses associated with the tourism industry,” Owens said.
