Hilliard no longer Visit Bemidji director

BEMIDJI -- Denelle Hilliard is no longer the executive director of Visit Bemidji.

Both Hilliard and Visit Bemidji Board of Directors chairman Curt Lundquist declined to provide further details regarding Hilliard's separation from the organization on April 11. It is not known publicly what circumstances led to Hilliard's departure.

Lundquist said Visit Bemidji will advertise for the position "very soon".

"As soon as we can find somebody who... meets the qualifications, we'd like to bring them on," he said.

Visit Bemidji promotes tourism to the Bemidji area, and is funded in part through a tax on hotel visits.
