The Oregon Coast Visitor Association (OCVA) inspires travel and strengthen collaboration to create and steward a sustainable coastal economy.
OCVA is a 501(c)(6) formed in 1987 by coastal cities, counties, destination management organizations (DMOs) and other stakeholders organized to promote vacation travel, recreation, attractions and overnight stays from Astoria to Brookings.
OCVA is governed by a nine-member board of directors. They maintain a healthy board composition that represents a mix of private, non-profit, government stakeholders and DMOs. T
OCVA's five full-time staff members are intentionally spread out along Oregon's coast to maximize network opportunities and investment in stakeholder relationships. The geographic positioning of staff and the board of directors allows OCVA to access agency/business capacities contributing such resources as staff time, technical resources, event/meeting space, marketing content and further access to their local stakeholder networks.
Their Marketing Partner program is a fee-for-service revenue source from over 100 tourism organizations and private businesses, which is maintained separately from Regional Cooperative Tourism Program (RCTP) funded activities.
