SNOWMASS VILLAGE - The year 1986 saw many staff changes for the Snowmass Resort Association, which later evolved into Snowmass Tourism. In July, Keefer Welch, executive vice president/general manager for 31⁄2 years, resigned after a disagreement about the amount of money budgeted for summer marketing, according to The Aspen Times. Later that same year, Carolyn Bishop resigned as director of public relations after budget cuts required SRA to let go of a staff person, making room for her assistant, Terri Hart, to move into her position. Soon after, Carolyn's husband, Llyoyd Bishop, was let go as the SRA consolidated job duties and took a new marketing direction. The Bishops then started their own marketing agency; their first client was, ironically, the SRA. Pictured are Carolyn Bishop and Terri Hart.
