Visit Austin President and CEO, Tom Noonan, has been nominated to serve on the Board of Directors for two different organizations– American Society of Association Executives and Destinations International.
“It is a special honor to be given the opportunity to serve on the ASAE Board of Directors in one of the few supplier slots,” said Tom Noonan. “Personally, it is especially sweet having the opportunity to serve on the same industry board that my father has previously served during his long association management career. I am grateful to be nominated to both ASAE and DI Boards and I look forward to working with my colleagues and with these associations as they are both important to our industry.”
ASAE is an organization for association management that is comprised of both organizations and individual association professionals. ASAE is considered to be the center for association leadership. Noonan’s service on the ASAE Board of Directors is the only position being occupied by a member of a destination marketing organization. DI, formerly known as Destinations Marketing Association International, is the world’s largest resource for DMOs, conventions and visitors bureaus (CVBs) and tourism boards. DI is a global trade association that works to advance and protect the success of destination marketing. Noonan’s presence on both of these boards will assist in the continuing collaboration between the organizations and other DMOs.
These two nominations are an addition to his already existing service on the U.S. Travel Association Board of Directors. Noonan has previously served on the board for the Association Forum.
