VIA President/CEO Jeffrey C. Arndt has been elected to serve as Vice Chair for the Visit San Antonio (VSA) Board of Directors, a designation that reflects Arndt’s and VIA’s ongoing support for connecting the region’s rich culture and historical destinations.

Arndt’s responsibilities as Vice Chair include providing policy direction, contributing to the formation of marketing strategies, and advising and assisting the President and Chief Executive Officer Casandra Matej. Arndt will serve a one-year term as VSA Board Vice-Chair. He previously served on the Board for 18 months as a Trustee.

Visit San Antonio is a 501(c)6 organization, and serves as the sales and marketing arm of San Antonio as a leading leisure and meetings destination. San Antonio welcomes 20.9 million overnight leisure visitors annually. Hospitality is one of the top five industries in the city, contributing $13.6 billion into the local economy and employing more than 130,000.
