Amador Council of Tourism - Thurs Jan 14

Hello again and Happy New Year-

Amador Council of Tourism is holding its monthly board meeting  Thursday, January 14th , 9:00 am, at Jackson Rancheria Casino Resort’s hotel conference room. Attached documents are: January 2016 agenda, and San Francisco Chronicle advertising opportunity.

Please note the hotel is getting some remodeling done and the third-floor bridge from the parking garage to the hotel is closed. Limited parking is available at the hotel parking lot and free valet parking is available at the hotel. Please allow extra time for this. Jackson Rancheria Casino Resort generously provides a light breakfast and hot tea or coffee.

Meeting starts promptly at 9 and will conclude by 10:30. We have a lot of ground to cover at this first meeting of the year; please arrive early in consideration of everyone’s time. Once agenda business is concluded, we quickly go around the room and update everyone on our individual businesses or towns.

Our first cooperative advertising opportunity of the year is an insert in the San Francisco Chronicle on Sunday, February 7th. Amador Council of Tourism subsidizes the section with $5,000 in order to make the section more affordable. My Gold Country partners are in negotiation with SF Chronicle to do an insert in mid-March. Amador advertisers are promised a reduced rate in the Gold Country insert, should they choose to participate. Please contact Andrez Guerrero at 415-216-8905 or email him at

JBCA Annual Meeting & Mixer - Wed Jan 20

Dear JBCA Board members and Friends of Jackson –
       At the January JBCA Annual Meeting and Mixer, we will be presenting a proposal to merge JBCA with the Amador Co. Chamber of Commerce at the end of this fiscal year.
       JBCA board discussion on the issues of duplication of effort, limited funds and shortage of volunteers, led to a meeting between Chamber and JBCA officers this month.
       At our meeting, Chamber leaders expressed enthusiasm about embracing the mission of JBCA, including annual events, and the addition of JBCA assets to the Chamber activities. Many JBCA members are already Chamber of Commerce members.
       This is a matter for all JBCA members to consider. Please save the date for the Annual Meeting, join in the discussion, and help us chart the best path into the future. Thank you!
