Destination Marketing Association International (DMAI) has designated 18 destination marketing organization professionals as Certified Destination Management Executives. As graduates of the association's CDME program, they are prepared for increased change and competition in the travel and tourism industry and have the knowledge to grow as effective organizational leaders. 

"The CDME program is recognized by the industry as the highest educational achievement for destination management professionals," said Michael D. Gehrisch, DMAI President and CEO. "The achievement of these CDME graduates is outstanding, and requires a significant commitment in time and resources."

Several staff members with Simpleview's DMO clients earned their CDME designation and we wanted to recognize their hard work and efforts.
