Town tourism coordinator completes first session of Marketing College

Town of Farragut Tourism Coordinator Karen Tindal recently completed the first of three intensive week-long sessions of Marketing College, a program of the Southeastern Tourism Society (STS), in Dahlonega, Ga.

STS has offered the Marketing College program at the University of North Georgia since 1992. Professors are industry-related professionals from across the U.S. who bring a working-knowledge of current trends, data, and implementation for tourism and travel. Upon completion of the three-year Marketing College curriculum, students receive a Travel Marketing Professional certification.

Tindal spent the week focused on the economic impact of tourism initiatives, best practices for destinations, and marketing Farragut as a destination. She is participating in the festivals and events track of the college.

She joined Town staff in February.

Incorporated in 1980, the Town of Farragut has top schools, safe neighborhoods and high development standards, making it one of the best places to live in the Southeast.
