Columbia Certified Toursim Ambassador!

March 6, 2013 ~ The Columbia Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) recently launched a new program called the "Columbia Tourism Ambassadors". The Columbia Tourism Ambassadors are a certified group of individuals who are committed to customer service, the tourism industry and Columbia as a destination. This is a great program that offers front line folks like our hotel staff, taxi cab drivers and restaurant staff but it also is for anyone who comes in contact with visitors!

You can view their website at: for more information!

I was the first graduating class from this program and  I would encourage anyone that deals with public and visitors to our community to give serious consideration on this program. They give you a great binder full of history about Columbia and no worries folks.... the test is open book! Thank you CVB for bringing this program to Columbia and I look forward to being a great CTA Ambassador for you!

Yes, I have the Ambassador piece covered.... Chamber of Commerce Ambassador (to celebrate our business community), Mizzou Ambassador (to support our Mizzou Athletics) and now Columbia Tourism Ambassador (to welcome our visitors and help them have a great time in Columbia, MO)!
