Mayo Prepares To Leave Calaveras

The Executive Director of the Calaveras County Visitors Bureau is resigning effective at the end of this month.

Lisa Mayo was Thursday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.

Mayo has accepted a position as the Director of Sales and Marketing for the Tuolumne County Visitors Bureau. Mayo will join the team led by Executive Director Nanci Sikes.

“Basically, I will be able to do the part of the job which I love the most, which is marketing,” says Mayo. “A really neat thing is that the counties along Highway 49 work so close together, and we cross promote all the time, so I will still be able to promote Calaveras County.”

As Mayo prepares to leave, Calaveras County just won a gold ribbon for its exhibit at the California State Fair that promotes tourism to the area. Playing off of the State Fair’s 2012 theme, “The Fun That Moves You,” the Calaveras Visitor’s Bureau (CVB) decided to focus this year’s display on, “Whatever Floats Your Boat.”

According to Mayo, “We literally started brainstorming for the following year while we were taking down last year’s booth.”

Mayo happily notes that Tuolumne County also won the gold ribbbon for their display at the State Fair.

Mayo has been with the CVB for 11 years and a “Say Goodbye to Lisa Mayo” dinner will be held on Tuesday July 24th at Kamps restaurant in Angels Camp. The event, which includes other CVB honors and annual recognitions, begins at 5:30pm. Tickets are $35 and can be reserved by calling (209) 736-0049.

The “Newsmaker of the Day” is heard each weekday morning on AM 1450 KVML at 6:47, 7:47 and 8:47am.
