Tri-Valley California, the new name for the Tri-Valley Convention and Visitors Bureau, is hoping to name a new president and CEO shortly. The move follows the resignation of Grant Raeside from his position as president and chief executive officer effective Sept. 10 with no notice to the media. Tom David, a member of the bureau's executive board and general manager of the San Ramon Marriott Hotel, said a third-party search firm was hired to screen potential candidates with the names of the finalists to be presented to the executive committee of the board.

How many names changes is this organization going to have this month? They just got through changing the name from Tri-Valley Convention and Visitors Bureau to Tri-Valley Tourism Bureau. Before the stationary is dry they are changing it again to Tri-Valley California?
By the way, all the stink that is being raised by the San Ramon Marriott is starting to tick me off. Maybe a Tri-Valley boycott of the place is in order. Speaking of the San Ramon Marriott -- they ought to change their name to reflect the architecture of their building; something like the Dungeon Marriott.
