Cathy Tull, senior vice president of marketing for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) has been chosen to serve on the Destination Marketing Association International (DMAI) 2014-2015 board of directors. The new board was sanctioned at DMAI's 2104 Annual Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada. During the event the organization celebrated 100 years of advancing destination marketing organizations.
"I believe the sustained success of DMAI is a tribute to the remarkable leadership and unique level of collaboration within our industry," said Michael Gehrisch, president and CEO of DMAI. "DMAI is an association driven by its volunteer leadership, and we pride ourselves on creating an environment and community where you have much to gain and much to contribute. As we look towards what the future holds for our industry, we are privileged to have such strong leadership guiding the way. There has never been a more exciting time for DMOs and the DMAI community."
"I am honored to serve on the DMAI Board of Directors among other top destination marketers," said Tull. "Destination marketing is essential to maintaining a strong and vibrant tourism industry and is vital to the long-term success of Las Vegas. Through this board, I look forward to sharing ideas among industry leaders. "
Scott Beck, president & CEO of Visit Salt Lake, will take the helm as chair of the DMAI Board of Directors. "Serving as Chair provides me an opportunity to give back to an industry and the people within it who have given me so much," Beck remarked. "Yes, it means more meetings - but it also means more chances to learn from these incredible professionals. Being Chair at this time is particularly special. We remain relevant as an industry, our centennial this year proves that, but we must look for opportunities to enhance that relevance and provide additional value."
