The Warren County Visitors Bureau has been without an executive director for about three months.
Rather than being in a hurry to fill the vacancy, the board of directors is comfortable with the way things are going and is prepared to leave the situation unchanged for at least three more months.
"We thought it would have to be an immediate thing," board president Karen Sobkowski said. But, she added, "We're going to wait until the first of the year. Things are going along so smooth."
Since former executive director Mike Olewine resigned on June 29, the rest of the staff has been putting in extra work.
Sobkowski said the day-to-day operations are in the hands of an office manager, an advertising and media director, and a part-time clerk.
"They're doing a great job," Sobkowski said.
There's no hurry, but the director position will be filled.
Sobkoski said the new executive director will need "a very strong sales personality," because "the director needs to sell Warren County."
In addition to convincing people to spend their time in the county, the director is involved in convincing advertisers to spend their money with the bureau.
However, the position is not all about sales. The director will coordinate with state agencies and tourism groups - Route 6 Alliance, Pennsylvania Wilds, and many others.
For the time being, Sobkowski is overseeing the effort daily. The staff's primary focus is on launching the bureau's interactive map.
Visitors will be able to schedule trips to the county and create maps and itineraries. The application will feature the businesses along the proposed route and information about businesses and sites will appear when users puts their pointer over them.
The map features some pre-set routes. "I'm real excited about trails," Sobkowski said. "Not just hiking trails and biking trails, but driving trails."
