I will say again that unless he changes the organization from a social club for insiders to something that actually promotes businesses the CVB will continue to be a dismal failure. Promoting the Palm Event center or Concannon winery is not showing the best of this area. Bigger and more ostentatious wineries can be found anywhere in Napa.
A complete change of staff is a good start but doing something for the merchants and the smaller players will prove that this guy actually wants to succeed.
