Interim Executive Director
Colleen Hodson joins the Family Travel Association as the Interim Executive Director, taking charge during our transition period to a non-profit.
As a longtime friend and member of the FTA, Colleen joined our board of advisors last year and has helped us set up the framework for our transition to a 501(c)6. Colleen lives in Cody, Wyoming and offers us with extensive experience in association management and niche marketing. She served as the Executive Director of the National Dude Ranchers Association (DRA) for the past 18 years and is currently the authorized agent of the Dude Ranch Foundation — a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit foundation.
She sits on the Board of Advisors for Yonder Global, a nature based on-line booking site, and operates her own marketing consulting business. Colleen has served as Treasurer on her local Chamber of Commerce Board, and has served on the board of numerous local tourism committees.
Before her stint with the DRA, Colleen and her husband owned and operated a very successful bottled water company, Rocky Mountain Bottled Water, as well as owned and operated an outfitting/summer pack trip business in the Shoshone National Forest.
