Genevieve Fleming has stepped down as chair of Destination Riverina Murray.
Ms Fleming will continue to serve on the board of directors but said it was time to step aside after holding the top spot since its formation in 2017.
The tourism network, which includes 22 local government areas including Griffith, Leeton, Albury, Wentworth, Tumut and Wagga Wagga, is now looking to help the sector recover after the bushfires and COVID-19.
"I will continue to serve on the board from 1 July 2020, to support the new chair as they transition into the role and to provide continuity for the organisation as the sector recovers from the impacts of drought, bushfires and COVID-19," Ms Fleming said.
"I'd also like to acknowledge Judy Charlton's resignation from the DRM board and thank her for the substantial contribution that she has made to the success of our organisation.
"The future is bright for our industry in the Riverina Murray region.
"I am pleased to report that many of our operators are already being inundated with bookings.
"We now have a unique opportunity to attract and develop relationships with visitors who might ordinarily travel on cruises or to overseas destinations to visit our region."
A new chair will be appointed in the next few days.
