Things are steadily moving forward for the Graham Chamber of Commerce and Convention and Visitors Bureau. CEO of the newly combined civic organization Jennifer Conway recently hired Sarah Barron as the new Convention and Visitors Bureau coordinator.

Among an extensive list, one of Barron’s main roles in Graham will be strengthening the city’s image as a destination for tourism, meetings, conventions and events. Also included in her job description is web development and maintenance in the promotion of Graham, outreach and support for conventions and events and interaction with business professionals, government officials and the public.

“The Chamber of Commerce and Convention and Visitors Bureau is extremely excited to have Sarah join our team,” Conway said. “We believe her experience coupled with her personality will be an incredible asset to the tourism program.”

Barron’s experience is extensive. She most recently served as the coordinator of presidential services and communications at Texas Tech University from 2011 to the present. Barron has also worked at Texas Tech as both a graduate and research assistant, and worked for the State University of New York, Maritime College as an orientation graduate intern, among other tasks working to improve the overall student orientation experience at the college.
