Get To Know Us
Incorporated on January 22, 1987, the Southeast South Dakota Tourism Association is a non-profit organization dedicated toward increasing the economic impact of the visitor industry on Southeastern South Dakota. The Southeast South Dakota region, consisting of 14 counties, is divided into five districts. The Association's 15-member Board of Directors is divided into groups of three-members representing each district. Funding is provided through memberships, South Dakota Vacation Guide and Southeast South Dakota Travel Guide ad sales and a contract with the South Dakota Department of Tourism. The fiscal year begins July 1st and ends June 30th. Our purpose is to promote tourism in Southeast South Dakota by working together with the South Dakota Dept. of Tourism and other regional tourism associations.
