Martinsville, Ind. – The Morgan County Convention and Visitors Commission is pleased to announce the selection of the first full-time employee at the Morgan County Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB). After a successful period of time working with tourism consulting firm Teresa Anderson and Associates to get the organization up and running, the decision was made to bring on an experienced tourism professional to lead the organization. Indiana tourism industry veteran Tosha Daugherty will begin as the organization’s new executive director on July 9, 2014.
Daugherty is a graduate of the University of Indianapolis with a BA in History and Spanish and an MA in History. She has previously worked in various aspects of the tourism industry, with a background that includes experience at a major attraction, parks and recreation office and a popular resort hotel. Most recently, Daugherty has handled various marketing, communications and digital responsibilities for Visit Bloomington, where she has been employed for more than 10 years. She has also been listed as one of the Most Influential Tourism Professionals on Twitter, most recently appearing at number 39 on the 100 person list. Daugherty is originally from southern Indiana and has been a resident of the Morgantown area for more than a dozen years, where she currently resides with her husband and son.
“We are very pleased to have found someone with the right experience who also lives in the surrounding area. Tosha’s background, especially her experience at Visit Bloomington makes her a great choice to lead the Morgan County CVB into the future,” said Ann Lankford, president of the Morgan County Convention and Visitors Commission. “We’re excited to welcome her to the organization.”
In the coming months, Daugherty will make it a priority to visit as many of the county’s tourism related businesses as possible, to connect with owners and employees who are the foundation of a successful local tourism industry. The Morgan County CVB will also be focusing on creating a more visible presence online and setting up new office space that will also function as a local visitor information center. The CVB office will be located at 109 E. Morgan Street in Martinsville, in a shared space with the Martinsville Chamber of Commerce. An open house will be planned in the near future to celebrate the new visitor information space.
