There are seven levels of memberships, fulfilling the needs of every member.
Why should I consider being a member?
Travelers spent an estimated $147 million in Sawyer County in 2006. Employees earned $52 million in wages, supporting 3,456 full time equivalent jobs in Sawyer County in 2005. Local revenues (property taxes, sales tax and lodging taxes) collected as a result of travelers amounted to an estimated $7 million to Sawyer County in 2006.
Without the state and local government revenues generated by tourism, taxpaying Wisconsin households would face an average of $950 in additional taxes annually to maintain existing government services. We need to unite our common goals to promote tourism to use our time, talents and financial resources as effectively as possible to maintain and increase our tourism economy in Sawyer County.
