I will use the next three years as an RACVB board member to continue supporting the growth of sports and leisure tourism," said Alderman Kevin Frost, City of Rockford. "It's an honor to work alongside several local leaders who share these same goals and advocate for our vibrant destination where residents are proud to call home and visitors can't wait to explore."
