The vacant position of Convention and Visitors Bureau Director for the city of Hays remains open. Rick Rekoske resigned from the job earlier this month.
It’s the second time in a little more than a year Hays is without a CVB director.
“At this point, we’re still working through the process,” said Jacob Wood, Assistant City Manager. “We haven’t actually determined how we’re going to go about searching for a new CVB Director.”
Wood anticipates it will “all be squared away in the next couple of weeks and advertisements for the job opening will be placed.”
In the meantime, Wood is filling the role of CVB Director.
“It’s a really good staff over there and they’ve been through this process before where they’ve been without a director for some time. So they know how to do it. I have a lot of confidence in the staff.
“We’ll make sure nothing falls through the cracks,” Wood said with assurance.
Rekoske was hired May 26, 2015, to replace previous CVB Director Jana Jordan, who retired Sept. 19, 2014, after 26 years with the city of Hays.
