Nassau County is a political subdivision of the State of Florida. It was created for civil and political purposes and acts under powers given to it by the State. The County's governing authority is the Nassau County Board of Commissioners (BOCC).

The BOCC has given us the support necessary to execute our award-winning marketing plans and the assets to do the job. In return we have surpassed our goals in every category. Two times during the economic downturn the BOCC increased the bed tax which allowed us to grow our tourism efforts and increase overall visitation and the economic impact to our community.

The Amelia Island Convention & Visitors Bureau (AICVB) was created by the BOCC in 2008 as the management marketing company for the AITDC, which is responsible for expenditure of the county’s 5% tourism development tax. This “bed tax” is a user fee collected from overnight visitors staying in short-term (less than 6 months) accommodations on Amelia Island.
