Tourist Commission Board Moves Forward with New Director

Georgia Craven, of Many, LA is chosen as the new Executive Director for Sabine Parish Tourist & Recreation Commission

Many, La – The Sabine Parish Tourist & Recreation Commission (SPTRC) Board of Directors elected a new Executive Director today at the regularly scheduled board meeting. The Board of Directors elected a 3-person Interview Committee last month and the Committee received 124 resumes with only 15 completing the application process as requested in the hiring notices that were placed locally, state-wide, and nationally. The Interview Committee consisted of board members Martha Henderson, representing Zwolle, Suzanne Williams, representing Florien, and Board President Lauren Moore.

After picking the top 10 candidates, the Interview Committee enlisted the help of three outside people representing Tourist Commissions from across the State to narrow the list to five candidates after they reviewed the applications and checked their references. Four people were interviewed today prior to the Commission’s Board meeting this afternoon.

The Interview Committee then recommended Mrs. Georgia Craven, of Many, LA, to the entire SPTRC Board of Directors, who unanimously voted to hire her as the next Executive Director. Mrs. Craven will begin working on December 2, 2021.

The entire Board of Directors along with the current SPTRC staff are excited to welcome her aboard to lead our organization and our Parish to the next level.
