Por­terdale Main Street Direc­tor Terri Haler will be leav­ing her post to be the new tourism direc­tor for the city of Cony­ers.

Haler’s last day work­ing with Por­terdale will be Fri­day, ac­cord­ing to city manager Bob Thom­son. She started with its Main Street pro­gram in 2013, af­ter work­ing with New­ton County’s tourism depart­ment and vol­un­teer­ing with Cov­ing­ton’s Main Street pro­gram.

She had been with New­ton County tourism since 2006, and was trea­surer since 2007. In her role, she helped de­velop Main Street Cov­ing­ton’s ad­ver­tis­ing and work within its bud­get.

That ex­pe­ri­ence made her a nat­u­ral fit for Por­terdale’s Main Street Direc­tor when Mayor Ar­line Chap­man, City Manager Bob Thomp­son and City Coun­cil­man Tim Sav­age were in­ter­view­ing direc­tor can­di­dates.

Haler’s first day work­ing with Cony­ers tourism will be Mon­day, ac­cord­ing to Cony­ers Public Re­la­tions Direc­tor Jen­nifer Ed­wards. Haler is re­plac­ing for­mer tourism direc­tor Har­riet Gat­tis, who re­tired in Jan­uary af­ter nearly 20 years with the city.
