In 2011, Memphis Area Association of Governments created the Tourism Advisory Board (TAB), made up of representatives from all four Tennessee counties in our development district: Fayette, Lauderdale, Shelby and Tipton, to bring awareness to tourism opportunities in the rural communities outside of Memphis.  Through a grant from the Tennessee Department of Tourist Development, the TAB began promoting these regions through the “West Tennessee Day Trippin’” campaign.

“Our partnership with MAAG, has allowed our museum to grow. The Day Trippin’ program and Black History Month bus tour helped increase our visitation number in 2014....The Alex Haley Museum appreciates all the promotion MAAG has offered and we look forward to continuing our partnership.”
