NACOGDOCHES, TEXAS (News Release) - The Nacogdoches Convention and Visitors Bureau board of directors appointed Tony Guidroz as interim executive director during a special July open meeting, effective Monday, July 10.

"I am extremely excited to take on the role as interim executive director of the Nacogdoches CVB," Guidroz said. "I look forward to working with the staff and board to help further the goals and objectives of the organization. I will contribute in every way I can."

During Guidroz's appointment, which will not exceed 120 days as directed by the CVB board, a professional search will be conducted for a permanent executive director.
