Tracy Farhad, executive director of the Solvang Conference & Visitors Bureau (SCVB), has announced the new 2017 officers and members of the SCVB Board of Directors.

“It is a real privilege to have these outstanding leaders of Solvang’s business community serve as volunteer board members to encourage the development of new promotional programs, oversee our strategic marketing plan and advancement of Solvang's tourism industry,” Farhad said.

The following five board members were ratified by the Solvang City Council on Jan. 23 and installed at the Jan. 26 SCVB meeting:

President, Kim Jensen, Ingeborg’s Danish Chocolates; vice-president/secretary, Angie Horn, Hamlet Inn & Atterdag Inn; treasurer/CFO, Susan Williams, Wandering Dog Wine Bar; directors Laura Hanberg, Treats Clothing Boutique, and Matt Raab, Fresco Valley Café; and honorary board member, Dr. Kenneth Harwood, economist.

All board members are active business owners or executive-level managers, or the property owner of a tourism-related business in the commercial area of the city of Solvang.

The Solvang Conference & Visitors Bureau is a not-for-profit organization formed in 1986 to promote the city of Solvang, known as “California’s Little Denmark” featuring Northern European culture, cuisine, arts and attractions.

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!
