The Government Finance Officers Association of United States and Canada (GFOA) has awarded Seattle Southside Regional Tourism Authority (RTA) the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in financial reporting for the fiscal year ending in 2019.

This certificate is the highest form of recognition in governmental accounting and financial reporting. Its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.

An impartial panel judged the report, demonstrating a “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the report.

The Seattle Southside RTA is the official destination marketing organization for Seattle Southside, including the cities of SeaTac, Tukwila, and Des Moines.
