Brand USA Says Board Members Paid Their Ways To London

June 21, 2012
Earlier this week, we noted that a few senators had concerns with how Brand USA was using its money (London sushi parties, etc.). The private-public entity is charged with promoting tourism to the United States, and gets funded through a tax paid by foreign tourists.

Well, Brand USA has a letter of its own for the one sent by the congressmen, with board chair Caroline Beteta writing that there is no need to worry about the trip board members took to London for an annual trade show, given they paid their own ways.

"The Brand USA board has never accepted reimbursement of any kind for any travel or other expense," the letter states. "In fact, we have directed millions of dollars in contributions from our organizations to Brand USA even as our duties as volunteer directors took us ever farther from our day jobs. We are proud of the time and resources we have contributed because Brand USA is a cause the travel industry believes in."

The letter also states that Brand USA is planning on turning over the information the senators requested. You can read the whole thing here.
