Pamela Miller, director of the San Angelo Convention and Visitors Bureau, announced Tuesday that she will be retiring, effective Feb. 1, 2017. Miller has served as the CVB director since 2004.
“It’s something I’ve been thinking about for a while now,” Miller said in a press release from the San Angelo Chamber of Commerce. “I’ve been in this business for a long time and as I continued to reflect on it, retiring in early 2017 became more realistic and workable. My husband and I are looking forward to a slower pace.”
CVB Advisory Board Chair Jamie Highsmith said, “Pamela Miller has brought outstanding ability, solid expertise, and strong leadership to the Convention and Visitors Bureau during the past 12 years. It has been a pleasure to serve as a volunteer under her direction. On behalf of the entire CVB board, we will miss Pamela and wish her only the best.”
“Pamela has done some wonderful work here and I hope you will join me in congratulating her,” said San Angelo Chamber President Dan Koenig. “Her hard work and influence on local, regional and statewide tourism has had a very positive impact over the years.”
Koenig noted one recent example of Miller’s work being her positive influence in getting a full-page story about San Angelo placed in a recent Sunday edition of the Dallas Morning News.
Other updates at the Chamber include:
Suzanna Aguirre has been promoted to director of sales and servicing at the San Angelo Convention and Visitors Bureau. Aguirre’s promotion stems from a vacancy created when Jenni Campbell resigned to relocate with her husband, Brian, to Tulsa, Oklahoma.
