Former Grenada tourism minister Brenda Hood

NEW YORK – Former Grenada tourism minister Brenda Hood is among six stalwarts of Caribbean tourism to be honoured by the Barbados-based Caribbean Tourism Organisation (CTO) allied membership during Caribbean Week New York next month.

Hood, who is the chairman of the Grenada Tourism Authority, and has served at various stages during her career on the CTO’s human resources technical committee, and the boards of the then Caribbean Disaster Emergency Response Agency (now the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency) and the Inter-Parliamentary Forum of the Americas, will be honoured at the Travel Industry Awards Dinner.

Hood, along with Colin James, chief executive officer of the Antigua & Barbuda Tourism Authority, will receive the Allied Award for outstanding contributions to the region’s development.

The Allied Award was established in 2005 to recognise individuals within the CTO family – government, airline, cruise line, allied and affiliate members and CTO staff – who have done an extraordinary job of contributing, in a tangible way, to the sustainable development of the region.

Tourism director of the Cayman Islands, Rosa Harris, along with Laura Davidson, president and founder of Laura Davidson Public Relations, will be celebrated with the Jerry Award for the passion with which they serve the region.

Noel Mignott, president and chief executive officer of The PM Group, and Annette Stowe, Internet and conference administrator at CTO-USA, Inc., will receive the Special Recognition Award for high performance. (CMC)
