B.T.B. organized with new board members

The K.H.M.H. may have one more experienced person on its staff but the Belize Tourism Board has several new bo ard of directors.  The new B.T.B. board comprises of new and former members representing different regions of the country. As we reported previously, Tracy Panton has returned to the industry and moved up as Chief Executive Officer. She will be serving as an ex-officio member to the new board which will be chaired by Ian Lizarraga, who is also the western region Representative. Others on the board are: Roger Espejo from the Belize City Council; Gaspar Guerrero from San Pedro; Einer Gomez from the Belize Hotel Association; Neil Bradley representing Caye Caulker and the outer Cayes; James Scott from the Belize Tourism Industry Association; Robert Pennel representing  the south; while Orlando de la Fuente represents the northern region.  Emil Arguelles, Attorney-at-Law, and former House speaker, has also been named to the board. According to the new board chair, the B.T.B. will be actively recruiting  a new director of tourism as well as a marketing director.  The outgoing chair is Mariam Roberson.
