Miller resigns from MCTA

Luke Graham

Steve Miller will miss a lot of parts of Craig, but one thing stands out in his mind.

“The people,” he said. “I worked with great people. We laughed a lot and were all passionate about our jobs.”

Miller, who resigned as sales and marketing coordinator for the Moffat County Tourism Association after four years, has moved to Colorado Springs to take a job with the University of Phoenix as an enrollment counselor.

“It was a great four years,” he said. “I hate to see it come to an end, but all great things must come to an end.”

MCTA collects a lodging tax in Craig and uses the resulting funds to promote tourism in the area. MCTA decides how funds can best be spent to promote festivals and events in the areas.

“When someone wants to put a festival together, we pay for them to advertise,” Board member Gary Cook said. “We want to get the word out to bring more tourism to Craig.”

People wanting MCTA support must apply to the organization.

Board members Cook and Dan Davidson and Cook said Miller will be missed.

“Steve was able to do a number of things on a part-time basis,” Davidson said. “He always followed through on what he said he was going to do. He was good at what he did.”

“As far as I know, we will try to replace Steve with someone else,” Cook said. “Those are going to be hard shoes to fill because he was so great.”

Davidson said MCTA likely will settle on a process for filling Miller’s spot at its next board meeting.

The next candidate, Cook said, has to be a good communicator and secretary.

“Steve was good at keeping us informed,” he said. “The next candidate must do the same.”

While Miller will miss Craig he has some advice for the next candidate.

“Just be yourself,” he said. “Be eager to learn new things and have a sense of humor.”

The next board meeting is July 20.
