Tourism’s organizational structure
Updated: December 07, 2018 - 1:37 pm

We are very fortunate in North Alabama to have Alabama’s largest and strongest regional tourism organization working to support our efforts in DeKalb County, Alabama Mountain Lakes Tourist Association (AMLA). AMLA was founded in 1964 through an act of legislation that provides a small percentage lodging tax to promote tourism in the northern sixteen counties of Alabama. This lodging tax is a source of income for AMLA, but they also provide each county a portion of the same lodging tax. North Alabama is the only region in the state to have this dedicated regional lodging legislation enacted.
