Beverly Nicholson-Doty Takes Over Leadership of CTO

 
Skerritt’s replacement is Beverly Nicholson-Doty, who is also the Commissioner of Tourism, for the United States Virgin Islands. 
 
The election was one of the main agenda items of Wednesday’s Annual Meeting of Tourism Ministers, held at the St. Kitts Marriott, Frigate, as part of the 2012 CTO State of the Tourism Industry Conference being held over the period 10th-12th October. 
 
Doty, who was elected without challenge from any other candidate, will now be at the helm to chart the way forward to tackle some of the crucial issues that still confront the regional tourism sector, including marketing, airlift and unfair international taxes on travel to the Caribbean. 
 
Nicholson-Doty is also a former Executive Director of the St. Thomas Hotel & Tourism Association, a position in which she served for many years. 
 
The rest of the new committee which serves for a 2 year period, are Chantal Figueroa as Deputy Commissioner; Vice chairpersons have also been selected from St Maarten, Martinique, St Lucia, Trinidad and Tobago and Bermuda and two members from the private sector. 
 
The conference was officially opened on Wednesday night and continues today Thursday with discussions on various topics led by panels filled with regional and international experts on the industry.

Wins for St. Kitts & Nevis & Trinidad Last Night

 
The two goals came in the first half of the match, which was the second of last night’s double header. St. Kitts and Nevis however failed to add to their score card in the final 45 minutes of the game, perhaps finding the Anguillians a little more challenging than previously anticipated.
 
The first goal for the Sugar Boyz came from Romaine Sawyer in the 15th minute followed by one from Captain Atiba Harris just 4 minutes after, in the in the 19th, bringing much joy to the fair sized crowd present at Warner Park.
 
There was also victory for Trinidad & Tobago over French Guiana in last night’s opening game, with the Soca Warriors defeating the South Americans 4-1. At the end of the first half Trinidad ended with a 2-1 advantage but went on to pick up 2 more goals in the second period, while French Guiana failed to find the back of the net.
 
The tournament continues on Friday at 6pm – French Guyana vs Anguilla; and at 8pm – St. Kitts & Nevis vs Trinidad & Tobago.
