Explore Gwinnett rolls out the red carpet

Lisa Anders is filled with energy and excitement about Gwinnett County, so it’s no wonder that she heads up the Explore Gwinnett organization as its Executive Director. The non-profit 501(c)(6), formerly named the Gwinnett Convention and Visitors Bureau (“That’s a mouthful of government words,” Anders quipped), Explore Gwinnett has one job, and that’s to attract conventions, groups and families to the county. Sounds simple enough, right? Not so fast. The job may be fun and exciting, but it’s far from simple.
