Eighteen years ago, the Logan County Chamber of Commerce and the Logan Economic Alliance for Development came together to bring local citizens collectively in order to develop a strategic plan for better serving the community of Logan County. The plan was named “Vision 2020.” Out of this vision, several organizations were developed to help increase income, create jobs and develop the image of Logan County as a tourism attraction.
This vision and goal brought about the Logan County Tourism & Convention Commission, which has been selected as the 2017 NDL Group of the Year.
The Tourism Commission acts as a link between who we are and the world around us. It is the representation of what we stand for, what we have to offer, where we have been and where we will be going.
In the beginning of the 2020 plan in 1999, many people came and divided themselves into six focus teams that would work toward specific goals for Logan County. Darlyn Moore and Evelyn Richardson were two women who were instrumental in the process to see Logan County develop for the people who not only lived within its borders, but for those who would see Logan County as a destination.
Since that time, the Commission has been located in four different locations in the past 18 years. For the past five years, the Commission has made their home inside the historic Logan County Courthouse. Promoting Logan County is the prime focus of the Commission and they do it in various ways.
From supplying information about Logan County via networking, kiosks, representation at the Kentucky State Fair, mapping, festivals, sponsoring events, and hosting annual contests which include, the Hay Bail Trail, Outdoor Christmas Lights Trail Extravaganza, pageants, and much more, the Commission offers an avenue to Logan County’s businesses and citizens to spread the word about what the County has to offer.
The Logan County Tourism & Convention Commission is the framework that puts Logan County on the market.
