Visitor Center Coordinator Recently Recognized as a Certified Tourism Executive

Jamie Matthews, the City of Huntsville’s Visitor Center Coordinator, was recently recognized as a Certified Tourism Executive. Successful completion of the program to earn the honor was a highlight of the annual Travel and Tourism College offered by the Texas Travel Industry Association (TTIA). The certification is a three-year endeavor followed by a capstone project for which Matthews created a concierge book featuring area hotels, restaurants, and entertainment venues.

Matthews has worked at the Visitor Center for over seventeen years, serving at different times as a Travel Counselor, Adventure Guide, and Visitor Center Manager/Coordinator. Matthews also holds a certification from the Texas Association of Convention and Visitor Bureaus (TACVB) as a Texas Destination Marketer, and said she found that this educational process was just as rewarding. Mayor Andy Brauninger shared the good news with the community at the July 5 City Council meeting.

For more information, contact Matthews at 936-291-9726 or matthews@huntsvilletx.gov.

    What kind of bogus nonsense is this? Our $20 million dollars in philanthropic efforts to promote tourism have never been recognized by whoever this person is.
    8 museums, 60+ wildlife refuges and botanical preserves, multiple-historic buildings preserved, 100 miles of trails including a Texas Parks and Wildlife Trail DO NOT EXIST in the eyes of this person who has never spent a minute actually promoting our pro-bono non-profit efforts to put heads in beds.

    The oligarchy and insider trading elite concoct all kinds of kudos for nobodies like Mac Woodward who has virtually destroyed the Sam Houston Park and Museum to promote his own ego agenda and to protect his father’s legacy of turning Margaret Lea Houston’s beautiful home into a WHITE-TRASH SHACK!!!
