Pikes Peak Country Attractions searching for new director

Michele Starling, who led Pikes Peak Country Attractions  Association for 13 years, has resigned. Her husband has taken a job in Florida.

The organization, which promotes attractions such as Garden of the Gods Park and Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, is searching for a new director.

“I have a great deal of admiration for the members of this association,” Starling said. “They all work together so well and our member attractions consistently deliver a visitor experience that surpasses expectations.”

The association was formed in 1973. Starling led the organization since 1999.

“I am proud of my contributions to Pikes Peak Country Attractions Association and so happy that they gave me the opportunity to be a part of their success,” she said.

The organization represents 26 attractions in the Colorado Springs area.  The executive director reports to the board of directors and is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the organization.

The board has launched a search to fill the post. The executive director would represent PPCAA members and their interests through promotion, marketing and advocacy.  Anyone interested in the position should email cover letter and resume to  ED@pikes-peak.com. The deadline to apply is Feb. 1.
