The Latest News from the VCVB
Happy Holidays to all of you. I can hardly believe that 2013 is coming to a quick close, but indeed 2014 is near.
January kicks off the 2014 promotional season for the VCVB. On January 11th through the 15th our Executive Director, Jeremy Miner, will be going to the American Bus Association Marketplace to promote bus travel to Valdez. We are hoping this trip will be very successful in generating new bus travel to our area.
As we look forward to the New Year, we thought it would be a good idea to let our members know about our main accomplishments of 2013. Here’s a quick 2013 VCVB Year in Review:
1. Hired full time staff including Executive Director Jeremy Miner and VIC Lead, Aaron Gottard.
2. Painted the inside of the VCVB and gave it a needed makeover.
3. Revised the VCVB Membership Application layout and added more member benefits.
4. Reformatted Valdez Visitors Guide to have bigger and better photos and less text heavy than years prior.
5. Created a winter brochure for Valdez.
6. Attended various trade, travel and media shows to promote tourism in Valdez and VCVB members.
We have more work to do in 2014 and lots of exciting things planned. Please come to our Annual Meeting on December 17th at 6:00 p.m. at the Valdez Civic Center to find out more. A delicious dinner will be served and we’d love to see you there.
Hope you are well all enjoying your winter so far. Take care and have great holidays.
Thanks for your membership and your time.
