Guam - Positive testimony filled the Guam Legislature's Public Hearing Room for the governor's appointments of Eduardo "Champ" Calvo, Jennifer Crisostomo and Nathan Taimanglo to serve on the Guam Vistors Bureau's board of directors.

Calvo said, "We have to maintain our identity and we really have to make sure that the world perception is that of something beyond a military base and the answer to that is to really promote Guam unique characteristics that revolve around our culture and our physical attributes including our proximity to points of Asia."

Crisostomo added, "We are a world class destination with ideas and talent to see this industry grow. With the great dynamic board in place the GVB can lead the way in the Pacific. One thing is for sure my heart and my passion is right here with Guam."

"I believe GVB is a successful and well run organization and the professionals that work there are passionate about their jobs and the tourism they promote," added Taimanglo. "I stand behind the current initiatives that focus on taking command of the visitor industry and bringing community involvement into the GVB so that we can make Guam an ideal tourist destination."
