Thank you so much for your interest in membership in the Georgia Association of Convention & Visitors Bureaus, the unified voice of Georgia’s destination marketing organizations. GACVB strives to continue to meet the needs of our members. 

“The #1 one most important factor that has allowed my DMO to grow as an organization and allowed me to succeed as an executive director is being a member of GACVB. The biggest value of my membership and participation in GACVB is the opportunity to network with my colleagues in the industry to share knowledge and exchange fresh ideas. The conference agendas are overflowing with relevant educational opportunities and Executive Director Jay Markwalter always has an answer to any question that I have… whether it is a request for an example of a written policy or recommendations for agencies and consultants. We have been a member since GACVB was formed and look forward to always being a member” ~ Tonya Harvey, Executive Director - Kingsland Convention & Visitors Bureau
