Springfield CVB President Reaches 30-year Milestone

Congratulations to Tracy Kimberlin on celebrating 30 years at the Convention & Visitors Bureau!

Tracy, president of the CVB, was joined by past and present board chairs on his anniversary date – July 2 – and his current staff to commemorate his service to the bureau.

He has seen many changes in the tourism industry in those three decades, including growing the organization’s annual budget from about $400,000 to its current level of more than $3 million, the addition of hundreds of hotel rooms, the development of attractions and much more.
