Oranjested – Maoreen, who has been in the destination management business since the age of fourteen when she assisted her mother Wichita Villacres, President & CEO at Eco Destination Management Services of ARUBA NV, has grown through the company ranks, going from Operations Assistant, to Account Manager, then Sales Manager. She assumed the role of Director of Operations, last year and as such just graduated the SITE International CIS certification, together with other travel professionals from around the globe. The CIS workshop had just concluded in Las Vegas, Nevada, and Maoreen is pictured here with the program trainers who presented her with her certificate of graduation, Dana Weaver, Growmark and Jim Skiba, World Incentive Nexus.
Maoreen reports that the workshop delivered a broad comprehension of the incentive travel industry, and that the CIS certification was an excellent stepping stone, as she takes the level of service to this specialized segment of the meetings and events industry to a higher level of professionalism. Designed for SITE members, it was an excellent source of knowledge, expertise, and personal networking, she concludes.
