LANSING, Mich. – The Team Lansing Foundation, along with the Greater Lansing Convention and Visitors Bureau (GLCVB) and the Tourism Ambassador Institute (TAI), are pleased to announce Malinda Barr, 2015 Greater Lansing Certified Tourism Ambassador of the Year, has been selected as the 2016 International CTA of the Year.
Malinda is the former Director of Sales at the Staybridge Suites Hotel, Okemos, MI and currently the Special Events Manager for the Lansing Lugnuts.
On behalf of the Committee, John Marks, past President & CEO of the San Francisco CVB, said, “Malinda, like all CTA of the Year winners, goes above and beyond what any guest might reasonably expect. Having grown up in the Greater Lansing region, she knows the community very well, but also utilizes all resources available to her, including quality material from the Greater Lansing CVB. She has a knack for anticipating guests' additional needs beyond that of their initial request, and goes out of her way to personalize their visit to the area.”
