The Australian Regional Tourism Network (ARTN) is regional by name and regional by nature with its secretariat based in the Riverina region of NSW at Leeton. The secretariat is staffed full time by our Executive Officer, Tracey Valenzisi, who conducts the day to day running of the ARTN and is available to assist members with queries and spread the word on regional tourism.
Tracey is currently the voluntary Chair of the Inland NSW Tourism Awards and Committee Member of RDA-Riverina and has worked on a vast array of tourism initiatives throughout the Riverina and Inland region of NSW including Country Change, and individual product and industry development projects.
Tracey has experience in industry engagement and the implementation of membership offerings for organisations. Tracey has the ability to liaise with members and discuss their issues and challenges, to identify opportunities to build capacity within the industry, to develop connections and cooperation at the ‘grass roots’, as well as working with local and state government agencies.
