Las Vegas Hospitality Association chair fills presidency void


Linda Ness, as chairman and past president of the Las Vegas Hospitality Association (LVHA), a nearly 500-member Las Vegas tourism industry organization, has resumed the role of president in the wake of Ce Ce Knapp, current president, moving to Florida. Ness will finish out the year as president and again be board chairman in 2010.

Ness works as the national sales director – west coast region for Freeman Audio Visual Solutions, and Knapp was vice president of hotel operations for Hooters before her move.

The Las Vegas Hospitality Association (LVHA) is a non-profit state association. Originally founded in 1962, the LVHA encompasses a broad spectrum of companies supporting the tourism, convention, and hospitality fields in southern Nevada.
