We don’t mean to brag. Okay, maybe a little.


Dear Jennifer Parsley (AIM tours),

“The Experience Cabarrus Tour was awesome! I left yesterday feeling excited and well informed about our area! After I got back to the hotel I felt more confident striking up conversations with guests browsing the brochure rack at our hotel. (I used to want to run and hide!) I found myself suggesting dinner ideas and even used your itinerary for some race fans wanting to tour the NASCAR garages! This was time well spent and I will make sure all of my front desk staff attend in the upcoming months! So please do not let anyone discontinue this training. I look forward to working with you in the future and thank you for all knowledge and tips you shared with us!”

“I wanted to let you know my daughter and I really enjoyed working with you and CVB over the weekend. You and your team did a wonderful job making sure we the volunteers were prepared and equipped with all of the resources and valuable information needed to provide to the DNC delegates. The binder was an excellent resource, being very organized and user friendly.  I also want to say thank you for providing us with lunch and the snacks. That was very thoughtful!

This was a great experience for us both!  Please keep us in mind for other volunteer opportunities. I’m looking forward to partnering with you and CVB in the future.”

“When we started the process of finding a new venue we did not plan to find something so quickly. It is amazing what is in your back door. The Cabarrus Event Center and the surrounding area is the complete package. Cabarrus is centrally located for all our members. The area has so much to offer. There is something for everyone not to mention some beautiful countryside for our members to do some great riding. The thing that finally convinced us was the Team at the Cabarrus CVB. Their enthusiasm and desire to make us feel welcomed worked. They have made us feel like we have found a home.”

“Mere words simply cannot express Dans’s and I’s gratitude for your wonderful hospitality when we were in Charlotte. As two die-hard NASCAR fans, you have definitely spoiled us for future races we attend. You put together an action packed weekend where each event outdid the previous. Thank you for taking time from your weekend to show us around. As we have said to you before, should you find yourself in the Washington, DC area, please do not hesitate to look us up.”

“Thank so much for all that you and your staff did to make the A-10 Cross Country Championship a memorable experience for the participants. We received such great feedback, any and all of the comments were positive. Your enthusiasm for the event was contagious. We are planning to put a bid in for 2013, which is the next available date to host.”

“Thank you for your assistance with the 2011 Atlantic 10 Cross Country Championship. The Cabarrus County CVB did a fantastic job hosting our teams for the event. You definitely made everyone feel like a part of the community. Please extend my gratitude to everyone that helped make this a great event.”

“Thank you so much for such an awesome weekend of racing! We all had an absolute blast! I really enjoyed my first race and enjoying it from the suite and terrace made it even better. My friends and I had a great time with you as well. Please let me know next time you are in Raleigh and would like to play golf with Jeff and I.”

“Thank you so much for all your hospitality this past weekend. Myself, along with my friends, had such a memorable weekend and some of that credit goes to you and your colleagues at Cabarrus County CVB. You were all so friendly, helpful and welcoming…so much so that I’m going to begin organizing a member golf/NASCAR trip down there for the fall race.

Please pass along my sentiments to John Mills, Tracy Aldridge, Lauren Carpenter, Dawn Williams (and her husband) and Mark D’Andrea. It was a pleasure to meet them all and look forward to seeing them again.

Enclosed you’ll find a couple gifts. Please give the hat to Mark…if  he’s going to play well, he needs to look good. The sweatshirt and Tervis Tumbler water bottle is yours. Just a little something to let you know how much I appreciate all the time you took with us and for all your work you do with the CVB.”

“I wanted to say thank you again for a great tour! I was in a rush to get back to work but another suggestion I would have made on the form would be an all day tour. That’s just because I enjoyed it so much! I also enjoyed the take-away items and the opportunity to network. I will be sending this on to other colleagues who may benefit from it as well. Thanks again for all you do!”
