Cape Girardeau CVB Executive Director Takes Home Award

PRESS RELEASE

 

Springfield, Mo. — The Missouri Department of Economic Development’s Division of Tourism recognized several individuals, organizations, and businesses that work in the tourism industry for their achievements at the 2013 Governor’s Conference on Tourism in Springfield October 2-4, 2013.   Each year at the conference awards banquet, service awards are presented for exceptional efforts aimed at moving tourism forward throughout the Show-Me State.

 

 

The Ambassador Award goes to an individual, business or organization that conscientiously supports and promotes Missouri tourism in any and all ways available to them. This may include involvement in MDT’s projects, providing publicity to Missouri’s attractions and events, and making an extra effort to assure travelers enjoy their Missouri experience – in other words, true ambassadors for Missouri.

 

Chuck Martin, Executive Director of the Cape Girardeau Convention and Visitors Bureau, took home the Ambassador Award for personifying the word ambassador. It was novelist Albert Camus who said: “Real generosity toward the future lies in giving all to the present.” For more than 10 years, that sums up Chuck Martin in a nutshell. The time, effort and hard work Chuck has given the Cape Girardeau tourism scene and Missouri tourism efforts will be felt for years to come. 

 

Chuck Martin serves in a variety of positions with a number of statewide organizations.  He currently serves as Vice-President of the Missouri Association of Convention and Visitors Bureaus (MACVB), as a member of the Executive Committee of MACVB, as a Director for the Missouri Travel Council (MTC), as a member of the Education Committee of MTC, as a member of the Cooperative Marketing Planning Committee of the Missouri Division of Tourism, etc. 

 

Year-round, travel and tourism is a rapidly expanding segment of Missouri’s economy. Missouri’s tourism industry generates $11.2 billion in revenue each year and supports more than 280,000 jobs in the state. Tourism also provides $1.1 billion in state and local taxes that help our communities. In the last fiscal year, total tourism sales were up $3.8 million when compared to the previous fiscal year.
