New Alamo director announced

Special to the Courier

Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush recently appointed Rebecca Bridges Dinnin of San Antonio as director of the Alamo, a new senior-level position in the Texas General Land Office (GLO).
"I am proud to welcome Becky to this important position within the Texas General Land Office - one that is meaningful not just for the GLO, but for all who hold the Alamo sacred," Bush said.
"As director, Becky will be responsible for the strategic leadership of the Alamo and I believe her expertise in communications, capital fundraising, tourism promotion and management will serve her well in this exciting and challenging new role."
Prior to her appointment, Dinnin was employed for seven years by the Greater San Antonio Chamber of Commerce, where she has served as vice president of Image and Communications. Earlier roles include several years as director of communications for the Baptist General Convention of Texas. She earned an MBA from Southern Methodist University and has an undergraduate degree in journalism from Baylor University.
"As a native Texan, I cannot imagine a greater honor than leading the Alamo," Dinnin said. "The Alamo is not only a shrine for all of Texas, but a cultural icon recognized around the world. I am proud to join the GLO and share the message of the Alamo with all who visit."
Dinnin will assume directorship of the Alamo role on Tuesday, Feb.17.
By order of the 82nd Legislature, the Texas General Land Office assumed responsibility for oversight of the Alamo in 2011. For more information on the Alamo, visit the official Alamo website at www.thealamo.org.
