Palm Springs CVA President and CEO Resigns

Jeff Beckelman, president and CEO of the Palm Springs (Calif.) Desert Resort Communities Convention and Visitors Authority, has announced his resignation, effective April 30. Beckelman has led the organization since the 2005, after former president Michael E. Fife was asked to resign that year over accusations of financial impropriety. A search is conducted for a new president and CEO should take three to six months; in the meanwhile, Judy Vossler, vice president of SilverRock Resort/LandMark Golf Management of Indian Wells, will serve as interim president and CEO.
