Long-time ESPA member Judy Draucker has announced her retirement
After 27 years with the organization, she will transition from a full-time Convention Services employee to a part time Visitor Center Travel Counselor on July 31st. Judy was first hired in 1987 as a Secretary for the Tourism Department. She worked for the Director of Tourism until leaving the organization in 1988. “It didn’t take long for her to miss us, and we missed her, so she returned part-time to help out in 1989 and then became full-time again in 1991. Since that time, she has been a Convention Services Manager overseeing numerous conventions in our region. Please join me in congratulating Judy on her next chapter in life,” said Matt Robinette, Director of Convention and Sports Services, Richmond Region Tourism.
