KDS Executive Director Heather Green has been elected Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Marshall County Convention and Visitors Bureau, the agency responsible for promoting the area to visitors. She was tapped to chair the tourism agency's board during its November 2018 meeting and will serve a one-year term.
Green is the Executive Director of the Kate Duncan Smith DAR School, a position she has held for more than 10 years. Prior to her tenure at KDS, she spent a number of years working in the tourism industry for organizations such as the Huntsville/Madison County Convention & Visitors Bureau, the Alabama Mountain Lakes Tourist Association, and the Lake Guntersville Chamber of Commerce.
"Being involved with the Marshall County CVB has allowed me to be better informed about all the great offerings in our county," said Green. "We are fortunate to live in a beautiful area of the country with world class recreation opportunities, events, museums, and attractions, and it's exciting to share that with visitors."
Green has served on the Marshall County CVB Board of Directors since June of 2016, representing the Town of Grant and Grant Chamber of Commerce.
