Albany--  An Albany leader is one of the people chosen to help bring tourism and dollars to the entire state of Georgia.  

Vice-President of the Albany Convention and Visitors Bureau Sara Underdown is one of 15 new advisory members elected to the Georgia Tourism Foundation.

The foundation's job is to market the state as a good choice for tourist and businesses through public and private partnerships. People were chosen from different industries throughout the state to serve on the board. Underdown is proud to be one of them.

"It's a great opportunity to represent Albany and all of Southwest Georgia," said Underdown.

The Georgia Tourism Foundation will also solicit private donations for tourism.  The foundation was created from Senate Bill 125.
