About

BOARD OF DIRECTORS

A department of the City of Irving, the Convention and Visitors Bureau reports to a Board of Directors appointed by the Irving City Council. Board terms are two-year commitments; appointees may serve a maximum of three consecutive terms. The Board of Directors makes recommendations to the City Council about convention facilities, assists with attracting visitors to the city and hires the executive director; it is a policy-making board.

Annually, the Board elects its new Chair and Vice Chair, and committee positions are established following that meeting. The board meets the fourth Monday of each month at 11:30 a.m. at the Irving Convention Center, an Irving hotel or other location. Correspondence to Board members may be directed in care of the Irving Convention and Visitors Bureau, 500 West Las Colinas Boulevard, Irving, Texas 75039.
