Destination Niagara USA, the official destination marketing organization for Niagara Falls and Niagara County, is currently looking to fill three openings on its board of directors.

General duties:
  • Support the mission of Destination Niagara USA, which is to enhance the economic prosperity of Niagara County by promoting, selling and marketing the county as a premier destination for meetings, conventions and leisure tourism.
  • Hold one of the following titles: business owner or principal, president, CEO, vice president or general manager; or hold an upper management/executive level position with the authority from an employer to make decisions based on the best interests of the destination and organization.
  • Qualify for a general business seat as defined.
  • Have the ability to access a secure, web-based board portal for meeting notices and general communication.
  • Adhere to the board roles and responsibilities.
