IDM Participates in Action Day


As part of the Wisconsin Hotel & Lodging Association’s Legislative Committee, Operations Coordinator John Lundquist represented IDM at last month’s WHLA Action Day, where hotel owners and operators meet with legislators to discuss issues pertinent to the hotel and travel industries of the state of Wisconsin. IDM was further represented by their property HotelRED, whose General Manager (Jason Ilstrup), Director of Sales (Heather Stetzer), and Front Office Manager (Megan Balgord) also participated in the event.

Among the issues that were discussed was support for sensible room tax reform, debate over a change in the school start date and how the tourism industry would be effected, and support for securing reasonable and appropriate funding for the Department of Tourism in the 2015-17 Biennial Budget.
