Monroeville – March 24, 2011 – Sen. Jim Brewster has been appointed to serve on the board of the Monroeville Convention Visitors Bureau.

“I am thrilled to serve on the board and will work to further partner state government and its resources with efforts to bolster the Monroeville community’s appeal as a tourism and economic hub,” Brewster said.

“It is imperative that we do all we can to encourage business investment, tourism and job creation.”

Appointed by the Monroeville Municipal Council, Brewster will finish an unexpired term on the five-member board – and serve until the end of 2014.

The board oversees VisitMonroeville, which was established in 1987 to increase and serve the convention, trade show, and travel industry. The agency also works to promote local businesses and services – including hotels, restaurants, and retail businesses. The staff works closely with the staff of the new Monroeville Convention Center to market and promote the region as a low-cost, high-quality location for trade shows and conventions.
