HoCo in the Know Tourism Ambassador Program

HoCo in the Know: Tourism Ambassador Program

Visit Howard County presents HoCo in the Know, our tourism ambassador program. More information to come!

There's still plenty of time to participate! Find all the details below: 

Do you have a front-of-house employee who gets a ton of questions about where to go, what to do, where to eat? Would you like your employees to be “in the know” about Howard County? We are building an ambassador program to do just that! 

We are seeking diverse businesses with passionate, service-oriented employees with strong communications skills. This program will educate Howard County employees on how to inform visitors on the ins and outs of the area based on their interests. Every six weeks, we will meet in person and learn about what Howard County offers through site tours and educational sessions.

What is required of businesses:

Every two months, there is a meeting/tour:

  • 4 meetings are required, including an orientation in historic Ellicott City
  • Average meeting length is four hours
  • Some homework (fun!) may be assigned
  • 21 or older
  • Must be a Tourism member - join here!

Save the date:
