The Yellowstone Teton Territory has elected Kathy Pope as its newest chairman of the board. Kathy replaces former Chairman of the Board, Tom Walsh.  

Kathy was born and raised in southern Idaho near Idaho Falls. She attended Ricks College after graduating from Shelly High School. While at Ricks she met and married Dan Pope in 1978. They are the proud parents and grandparents of five children and five grandchildren. 

Kathy has been in the transportation business for 32 years and has worked for Salt Lake Express for 14 years as the Regional Sales/Marketing Manager. She has been instrumental in helping grow Salt Lake Express ridership from 17,000 passengers in 2005 to 300,000 passengers in 2018. She has been a member of the Yellowstone Teton Territory since 2009 with Salt Lake Express. Her previous positions with YTT include serving as the Secretary on the Executive Board, Madison County Representative, and Bonneville County Representative.

She looks forward to continuing to help promote tourism in Region VI, increasing revenue for our local business, and growing membership in Yellowstone Teton Territory. 

Christopher Mann, grant administrator of the Yellowstone Teton Territory grant and CEO of the Rexburg Area Chamber of Commerce, says, “I am excited to have Kathy Pope as the new Chairman. She is capable and has wonderful leadership abilities. We express appreciation to Salt Lake Express for sharing her with us and letting her take on this added responsibility. As an organization and personally, we thank Tom Walsh for his service and hard work to make East Idaho a leading tourism destination for the United States and the world.”
