Central Coast Tourism Council Reveals New Board of Directors Roster

The Central Coast Tourism Council is pleased to announce its 2016-17 board of directors.

The council welcomes Presient Molly Cano, City of San Luis Obispo; Vice President Rebekah Evans, Ventura County Coast; Treasurer Jane Howard, Gilroy Welcome Center; Secretary Michele Gogliucci, Cima Collina Winery; and Past President Marlyss Auster, Ventura Visitor & Convention Bureau.

Kathy Vreeland, Buellton Chamber & Visitors Bureau; Karen Stewart, Four Brix Wine; and Jennifer Talt-Lundin, Ventura Harbor District

CCTC Boardmembers are stewards of the council’s vision and the assets that secure and sustain its wellbeing and growth. The board is responsible for establishing procedure, overseeing finances and formulating policy of the organization.

CCTC is a nonprofit, cooperative marketing membership organization with a very active, all-volunteer board of tourism and hospitality professionals representing each area within the Central Coast region. It has operated since 1989.

The council’s national and international marketing efforts are accomplishing collectively what individual tourism entities cannot do alone: promote the entire California Central Coast as a top destination in California and maximizing its members’ tourism revenues.

CCTC is a partner of Visit California.

Kathy Vreeland is the executive director of the Buellton Visitors Bureau and Chamber of Commerce.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
