The 2013 year will be a year of change at the Marion County Convention and Visitors Bureau, including a change in leadership.

Leisha Elliott took over as executive director on January 1 after Marianne Moran retired.

Elliott said she has lots of plans for 2013, including creating a new visitors guide, revamping the CVB website, and using video production to promote the county.

"The ad agency that we're working with will do six videos. Maybe one general video and then some that are a little more specific to different areas in Marion County. We could show them not only here in the visitors center but when we go to trade shows we would be able to show that," Elliot said.
