At the 2018 Backstage Ball we proudly presented the Patron of the Arts Award to Michele Vennard, Albany County Convention & Visitors Bureau President and CEO. Michele is a passionate advocate for the importance of the arts in economic development. In her 25 year career at the ACCVB, she has worked tirelessly to promote Albany and the Capital Region to potential visitors, residents, and businesses, and was instrumental in bringing the Albany Capital Center project to fruition.
