Wabash CBV holds open house for leaving tourism coordinator


The Wabash County Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) will host an open house on Sept. 13 from 4—6 p.m. at the new Welcome Center and Gift Shop to thank Jill Ross for her service to the organization for nearly three years.

Ross, Tourism Coordinator for the Wabash County Convention and Visitors Bureau, has accepted a position as Marketing and Business Development Director with L.A.P, Inc., a locally owned and operated business. Her last day with the CVB will be Sept. 13.

“Jill has worked tremendously hard serving as the Tourism Coordinator for the county,” stated Christine Flohr, executive director for the Wabash County Convention and Visitors Bureau. “Her talents will be missed, however this is an incredible opportunity and I couldn’t be happier for Jill and her professional future.”

Ross started with the organization in October of 2010, serving as part-time administrative assistant to the executive director. Ross was promoted to tourism coordinator in the winter of 2011 and has been serving in that capacity since.

During her service, Ross executed numerous tasks including the oversight of the distribution of visitor guides throughout the county, maintained the Visit Wabash County website, grew the social media fan base and launched the monthly Stay and Play calendar of events, just to name a few.

“I love Wabash County,” shared Ross. “Working for the CVB has been very fulfilling. The Board of Directors have always been supportive and I have learned a lot from working with Christine. I am excited for this next chapter in my professional career.”

The tourism coordinator position will be filled immediately. Those interested in applying for the position can submit a cover letter and resume to Visit Wabash County, 221 S. Miami St, Wabash, IN 46992 and sent to the attention of Christine Flohr or via email to
