Overseas Tourism is Big Business for the USA

Overseas visitors stay longer and spend more money in the Capital Region than visitors from the USA. In 2015, a record 2.6 million overseas travelers visited the Capital Region USA (CRUSA), stayed an average of 9 nights and spent a record $2 billion on hotels, meals, shopping, attractions and other goods and services across Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia. These overseas visitors helped to generate nearly 39,000 jobs throughout the Capital Region.

Job Opening

The Capital Region USA (CRUSA) board of directors seek a dynamic and experienced Chief Development Officer to lead the organization.  The selected candidate’s primary responsibility will be to identify and develop new and innovative sources of funding to ensure that the organization’s goals of maximizing overseas visitation, spending and length of stay to Washington, DC, Virginia and Maryland are achieved. This senior position reports to a voluntary board of directors. Deadline to apply is March 1, 2017. View the full position description.
