    For the Record: CVB Boardmembers & Officers, 2002-2003

    (April 3, 2003) -- Posted below, and provided by the LB Area Convention and Visitors Bureau at our request, is a list of CVB's Boardmembers and Officers 2002-2003.

    LB's CVB is a not-for-profit entity legally separate from City Hall which receives roughly 3/4 of its operating budget from LB's hotel bed tax (transient occupancy tax).

    As separately reported today by, CVB's President/CEO Steve Goodling, said in response to an inquiry by us, "It will be fine if people want to attend our board meetings. We've never had a request like that before. Quite honestly, we didn't think there was the interest, but the more people understand what we do, the better it is."
