Members of the Washington County tourism board that will decide the fate of nine remaining tourism employees and the Breezewood, Pa., information center, will be elected on July 31, tourism officials said Thursday.
Members of the temporary board of directors for the Hagerstown-Washington County Convention and Visitors Bureau hosted a meeting Thursday morning at the Ramada Inn to bring the bureau's roughly 130 members up to date on restructuring moves intended to direct more money toward marketing efforts than toward salaries.
Of the 63 people present, about 45 were members of the bureau, said Ron Stansbury, board president.
About two-thirds of the 63 people - including about 45 members - attending the meeting signified with a show of hands that they agreed with the direction tourism efforts were taking.
