Deadline April 14 for Marion’s best in Customer Service

Marion, Ohio – Successfully marketing Marion as a tourism destination is only half of the equation in supporting the $78 million industry in our county. Local attractions, restaurants, and hotels welcome visitors and make their time in our community pleasant and memorable. In an effort to recognize the valuable efforts of our tourism industry staffers, the Marion Area Convention and Visitors Bureau created the Customer Service Star Award.

The Bureau is now accepting nominations for the Customer Service Star Award, to be presented to one individual who meets the application criteria of service to customers in the tourism industry. April 14, 2017 is the deadline for nominations.
