FREE TRAINING OFFERED TO FRONT LINE STAFF IN WV's HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY

The session is called WV Welcome and is designed to communicate the importance of front line staff to all visitors to WV. It emphasizes that our staff, are the "faces" of WV and are ambassadors for WV tourism. 

A trainer came to our CVB and conducted a morning and an evening session with front line staff from Café Cimino Country Inn, the Days Hotel and the Microtel (the 3 local lodging facilities in Braxton County).

The training was free, which is, of course, always appreciated by employers.
