ST. LUCIE COUNTY – St. Lucie County’s Tourism Manager Charlotte Bireley has been tapped once again to serve on a statewide tourism committee. After serving last year on VISIT FLORIDA’s Advertising and Internet Committee, the state agency has appointed Bireley to serve on the Cultural, Heritage, Rural and Nature (CHRN) Committee.

With an effective term running July 1 through June 30, 2017, Bireley will serve on the 29-member committee, which provides industry input, feedback and counsel on matters relating to cultural and eco-tourism marketing and promotion efforts for the Sunshine State.

‘This appointment comes at an excellent time to coincide with St. Lucie County’s planned efforts to develop and promote our eco-tourism opportunities,’ said St. Lucie County Commissioner and Tourist Development Chair Chris Dzadovsky. ‘It also ties in nicely with some of the cultural press tours that Charlotte has hosted recently, including events that focused on local African American culture and heritage including Zora Neale Hurston and The Highwaymen.’

A native of the Treasure Coast, Bireley has worked for St. Lucie County’s Tourism Office for more than seven years and has an extensive background in marketing and promotions.

VISIT FLORIDA, the state’s official tourism marketing corporation, serves as Florida’s official source for travel planning to visitors across the globe. For more information see
