Laura Beth Strickland named Vicksburg CVB Executive Director

Laura Beth Strickland, employee of Vicksburg Convention and Visitors Bureau for 10 years, has recently been named the CVB’s newest executive director. As a Vicksburg native and proud Mississippian, her experience and passion for growing the tourism industry in Vicksburg is not only a professional goal but also a personal goal of hers.

Her executive director title will entail various high-level responsibilities such as acting as the official spokesperson for Vicksburg CVB, advocacy and working with state and national legislators.

“This is a great chance to further build relationships with our stakeholders,” said Strickland. “There has been such a great foundation built for Vicksburg tourism and I can’t wait to take it to the next level.”

Before starting her career at Vicksburg CVB in 2009, Strickland completed her education with a double major of English and Journalism at the University of Mississippi.

Strickland is married to husband Michael and has two children, May and Michael Lanier (as well as a fur child!) When she isn’t busy bettering the Vicksburg community she enjoys traveling, going out to eat and shopping.

Godspeed to Laura Beth and congrats on the new role!
