The Executive Advisory Council (EAC) held its Mid-Year Planning Meeting in Wales May 19-25, 2017. Thank you to Visit Wales and the in-country co-partners who supported the meeting.

While in Wales, the EAC had daily meetings to plan  ETC's Signature Conference 2018-our 32nd global gathering and ongoing web initiatives. They were also able to experience some of the natural and cultural opportunities of this beautiful country.
