January 30, 2022


5:30AM - 8:00AM EST

Nellie Freeborn is the Executive Director of Visit Visalia, the "marketing arm" of Visalia, CA. Steve Nelson is the CEO of Downtown Visalians, and he is the mayor of the city of Visalia! Tune in to hear Nellie & Steve discuss Visit Visalia becoming an Autism Certified Center in 2021. Visit Visalia is the first Destination Marketing Organization in California to earn this designation through IBCCES. This designation means that visitors with autism can travel to Visalia with confidence knowing that they are prioritizing accessibility and inclusion. Visit Visalia also has established the “Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Program”. This initiative is a simple way for our visitors and residents to self-identify they have a disability that might require a little extra help. Learn more about these programs and view resources at:
