LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Little Rock Convention & Visitors Bureau president and CEO Gretchen Hall will serve on the America250 Foundation’s National Hospitality & Tourism Advisory Council.
America250, the nationwide commemoration of America’s 250th anniversary in 2026 led by the U.S. Semiquincentennial Commission, has established 11 advisory councils across a variety of industries and specialties to increase inclusiveness, expand its capacity, and connection to partners and stakeholders, and facilitate program development, implementation, and social impact.
“It is an honor to serve on America250’s national hospitality and tourism advisory council,” Hall said. “The ability to contribute to this organization’s mission of unifying Americans from all walks of life and celebrating our nation’s upcoming 250th U.S. Semiquincentennial is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”
As the nonprofit partner to the U.S. Semiquincentennial Commission, the America250 Foundation has been established by Congress to orchestrate the largest and most inclusive commemoration in the nation’s history.
“We are excited to introduce our 11 advisory councils as we seek to connect with millions of Americans on our journey to 2026,” said Dr. Carleen Carey, director of public outreach and inclusion at America250. “Each council is composed of industry luminaries and leading experts in their respective fields who are empowered by America250’s mission and values. We look forward to the thoughtful contributions they will bring to this commemoration to ensure we are capturing the many voices of Americans.”
