Who is Visit McKinney?
Visit McKinney strives to bring visitors to the community to generate economic impact by promoting and developing McKinney as a destination for business and leisure travelers alike so they'll fully experience McKinney’s historic charm and friendly unique atmosphere, to enjoy themselves so much, our visitors can’t wait to bring their family and friends back with them again.
Visit McKinney also works with individuals, tour operators, brides, reunion groups, meeting and event planners, travel writers and other journalists, and our tourism partners (attractions, hotels, restaurants, and cultural venues) to help visitors enjoy their time in McKinney. Our services are all free of charge.
Visit McKinney Board
We are overseen by a seven-member board appointed annually by McKinney City Council. Our board meets monthly on the fourth or fifth Tuesday of each month, based on the availability of necessary reports for review/consideration by the board. Board meeting dates, agendas, and meeting recordings can be found on the city's website.
Visit McKinney & The City of McKinney
The Visit McKinney staff adheres to all city employee policies and the city calendar. Our staff operates on the R.I.S.E. values adopted by city leadership. We also embrace and adhere to the city's recently-adopted Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement which was created following 20 small group meetings and listening sessions seeking input from staff.
