In her new role, Wojdyla will be responsible for leading the association’s membership efforts throughout the state, developing partnerships and sponsorships, managing events and overseeing marketing and communication strategies.
Wojdyla joined VRLTA in September 2019 to lead the association’s membership retention and acquisition. During her tenure, she helped transform the organization’s communications, improved member outreach and enhanced member engagement.
“Brittany has proven to be an indispensable team member and leader within the association,” Eric Terry, VRLTA president, said in a statement. “She has built valuable relationships with our members and other constituents and has made great strides in updating and streamlining internal efficiencies. I am confident that she will continue to build on these successes and play a key role in our future efforts and accomplishments.”

“I look forward to continuing my work alongside our staff, members, partners and sponsors to build on our foundation and plan new initiatives that will benefit Virginia’s hospitality and tourism industry into the future,” Wojdyla said. “It is a pleasure to support the efforts of so many of the commonwealth’s finest businesses and organizations.”
