Natchitoches CVB staff members gain Travel Counseling Certification

Two more staff members at the Natchitoches CVB received their LTPA Certified Travel Counselor certification in October. Jean Carter and Stephanie Rabb took the exam at the recent Lt. Governor’s Tourism Summit held in Shreveport. They will be certified for the next three years.

The Louisiana Travel Promotion Association (LTPA) hosted the Tourism Summit and the LTPA Travel Counselor Certification Exam was offered at one of the sessions. The test is based on information on the State of Louisiana.

All LTPA Certified Welcome Centers must have two certified counselors that work 20 hours per week or one certified counselor that works 40 per week. The counselors are in charge of maintaining statewide promotion material in their center. Travel Counselors are the official greeters for the State of Louisiana.
