BAHCVB names new Executive Board

On Wednesday, October 26, 2016 the Bay Area Houston CVB (BAHCVB) named a new Executive Board after a special meeting held Wednesday afternoon. The non-profit tourism organization has experienced many staffing changes over the past six months and is now moving forward in a new and creative direction.

The BAHCVB is a unique destination marketing organization for the region funded by the cities of Kemah, Nassau Bay and Seabrook. The goal of the organization is to increase awareness of the Bay Area by identifying it as a premier visitor’s destination for leisure, meetings and business.

The BAHCVB Board of Directors is comprised of three representatives from each city. During yesterday’s special board meeting Kristi Sykora, the Director of Communications and Special Events for the City of Nassau Bay, was named Chairman. Seabrook Councilmember Mike Giangrosso will remain Vice Chair and Wendy Ellis the City Administrator for the City of Kemah will serve as Treasurer. LeaAnn Dearman, the Director of Communications and Marketing for the City of Seabrook, will act as the organization’s Secretary.

All three of the cities that fund the BAHCVB agree that regional marketing is vital to the continued growth and development of the area. Moving forward the BAHCVB will be developing a Request for Proposals to develop and implement a new marketing plan for the organization.

Happy retirement to Visitor Center Specialist Doug Briggs!
