HOTEL GROUP CHANGES NAME, BROADENS BASE

In a move to broaden its membership base and therefore its political clout, the St. Thomas-St. John has changed its name to the St. Thomas-St. John Hotel and Tourism Association. "We need to make the structure of the organization more far-reaching and inclusive," said Beverly Nicholson, executive director, in a story in The Daily News. The association has also formed an alliance with the National Restaurant and Bar Association that enables restaurants and bars to hold dual membership at one cost. The members also designated seats on the Board of Directors for members of various groups: restaurants and bars, transportation, retail and attractions activities. Longtime St. Thomas hoteliers Dick Doumeng, Lorette Resch and Nick Pourzal were given permanent seats on the board of directors as honorary members with a vote.
