Executive Director of Kankakee County Conversation & Visitors Bureau resigns 

BOURBONNAIS – For over half a decade, Staci Wilken has lead the charge to bring tourists to Kankakee County.  Beginning next month, she’ll be stepping aside.

“In my six years, I have truly appreciated the support of the Board of Directors as together we’ve navigated a comprehensive rebrand of the organization, an industry-crippling pandemic and now, a successful rebound positioning the CVB to continue doing the important work charged to it by the businesses and residents of this community,” Wilken said in a press release sent out by the Village of Bourbonnais early this morning.

Ms. Wilken joined the Kankakee County Convention & Visitors Bureau in 2016. She did not disclose what her next adventure would be.

“I sincerely thank Staci for her leadership and service,” said Board President Laurie Cyr. “Anyone that has worked with Staci during her time managing the CVB knows that her departure from the organization is a loss to every community in Kankakee County.”
