Local tourism agencies have been meeting several times a year, but now they will start meeting monthly.  Tuesday, representatives of Visit Bend, the Central Oregon Visitors Association (COVA) and all the area’s local cities met in a regional tourism meeting.  Alana Hughson with COVA says they agreed to keep the same tourism model going forward and reaffirmed the unique goals of each agency.  “And I think the significant difference Visit Bend and COVA is; COVA is the regional umbrella, where Visit Bend's emphasis is obviously Bend.  COVA is the regional umbrella for the entire region.  We're going to continue to meet and collaborate on media strategies and getting our message in the marketplace.”  Representatives from Bend, Redmond , La Pine, Sisters and Sunriver all participated in Tuesday's meeting with two Portland facilitators.
