CTC-28 on tap for USVI in fall

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados -- The Caribbean Tourism Organizations (CTOs) 28th annual Caribbean Tourism Conference (CTC-28) will take place in the U.S. Virgin Islands Oct. 22-26.

The venue marks the second time in three years that the U.S.V.I. hosted CTC. Last years conference -- CTC-27 -- was held in Aruba.

In other CTO news, Arley Sobers, CTOs former director of information research and management, assumed the post of acting secretary general until a permanent candidate is selected.

Until recently the post was held by Karen Ford-Warner, who resigned to return to Jamaica as head of the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management at the University of Technology in Kingston.

The secretary generals post has been vacant since September 2004 when Jean Holder retired after more than 30 years at CTOs helm.

Pamela Richards, CTO chairman, expects to announce the selection of a new secretary general during CTO Week in New York, which will be held from May 29 to June 4.
