The Manchester (N.H.) Area Convention and Visitors Bureau temporarily will suspend operations at the end of the month due to a loss of city funding, according to executive director Marcia Snively. She will continue to update some content on the CVB's website and will meet in coming weeks with city and state officials to discuss the transfer of responsibilities from the CVB to the local chamber of commerce and other governmental departments. Snively also said she will investigate other sources of funding and hopes to get the bureau back up and running in some form. "Who knows? Maybe we'll be the New Hampshire CVB," she said.
