Congratulations Avice Pearson – North Alabama Elite Tourism Professional in DeKalb County

May is National Tourism Month and National Travel and Tourism Week was celebrated from May 7-13. National Travel and Tourism Week is an annual tradition for the U.S. travel community, established by a congressional resolution in 1983 and first observed the following year.

It is a time when travel and tourism professionals across the country unite to celebrate the unique value travel holds for our economy, businesses and personal well-being.

“This year’s theme for National Travel and Tourism Week, Faces of Travel, placed the spotlight on the people that go above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to taking care of visitors and Cathy Marko, Cynthia Stinson and Avice Pearson all meet the criteria to be named a North Alabama Elite Tourism Professional,” said AMLA President and CEO Tami Reist.

“The North Alabama Elite Tourism Professional recognition honors those individuals in the 16-county region of North Alabama who offer top notch service to visitors and is committed to the success of the tourism and travel industry.”

These three individuals were recognized for demonstrating outstanding customer service and hospitality in celebration of National Travel and Tourism Week in Alabama and were presented with a balloon bouquet and a gift card from Alabama Mountain Lakes Tourist Association for their contributions to the tourism industry.

Avice has been with DeKalb Tourism since February 2003 and has played a vital role in the success of tourism in DeKalb County. Congratulations Avice and also Cathy and Cynthia.
