From last spring to this, Fort Collins has had a great year.

Well, there were the floods, and they ravaged the lives and situations of many people. They were very unfortunate, and recovery continues.

Beyond that, it's been a great year. Businesses prospered, we welcomed plenty of visitors, hosted the USA Pro Challenge bicycle race, and MAX Rapid Transit started running.

Topics such as these are what we'll cover today at the Hilton Fort Collins as we convene with Visit Fort Collins for their annual National Tourism Week lunch. Jim Clark, the President and CEO of Visit Fort Collins will review the state of the state of tourism and other issues, as he does for us briefly in this interview.
