2019-2020 Western Chapter Candidates


Ellen Clark

2nd Vice Chair

Doug MacKenzie

As the media relations director for Visit Phoenix for 18 years, I have attended SATW Conferences, met with, and hosted numerous members to our destination. As an associate, I can offer keen and valuable insights for the Western Chapter. My knowledge of the media landscape would be valuable for this position.


By strengthening the Western Chapter, this only make the national organization more sturdy and stronger. I hope you will support my candidacy.


Gaylene Ore

As a 30-year veteran of the tourism and travel industry, I’ve worked with destinations, resorts, ski areas, dude ranches focusing on communications and marketing.  I’ve been a member of SATW for 14 years and have been active in the Western Chapter and have held several board positions. I have found SATW to be a valuable resource throughout the years from networking to professional development and would appreciate the opportunity to continue to serve as the Associate at Large for the Western Chapter.
