The Sullivan County Visitors Association will host its Annual Meeting & Holiday Celebration on Thursday, Dec. 4, 2014 at Mr. Willy’s Restaurant in Monticello.
During the festivities, the SCVA will announce the winner of the 12th Annual TOAST (Tribute to Outstanding Associate Serving Tourism) Award. TOAST Awards highlight the best employees and staff members in tourism – the people who make up the backbone of the industry in the Sullivan County Catskills today.
Presentations for the evening, sponsored by Mohegan Sun and Monticello Casino & Raceway, will also feature a detailed look at both the SCVA’s most recent accomplishments and its plans for the upcoming year.
“It’s been a very strong year for our organization and we’re looking forward to sharing all the great news with the Sullivan County tourism community,” SCVA President Roberta Byron-Lockwood said. “Plans are already underway for next year, and we’re confident that it will be our best yet.”
TOAST Award nominations are still being accepted, and the award is open to all SCVA member businesses. Nominations must be made by the business owner or manager.
SCVA members who nominate employees for a TOAST Award are asked to submit via mail or email materials supporting each award entry, such as photos, letters of commendation, positive customer feedback, and news clippings.
The winner of this year’s TOAST Award will receive the recognition of the county’s tourism industry.
“Please make sure your nominated employees are present at our Annual Meeting & Holiday Celebration,” Byron-Lockwood said. “Even if they aren’t the official winner, they’ll be glad to know you thought enough of their dedication and contribution to nominate them.”
Nominations should be addressed to Phyllis Andrews at email@example.com or by mail to “Sullivan County Visitors Association, 100 Sullivan Ave., Suite 2, P.O. Box 248, Ferndale, NY 12734”. For more information about nominations, call Phyllis at 845.747.4449.
