The Destination Wedding & Honeymoon Specialists Association (DWHSA) has promoted Lisa Sheldon, owner of I Do Island Weddings, Janesville, Wisconsin, to president, effective Sept. 1. This represents the first time DWHSA has had a president.

Sheldon has served as DWHSA's executive director since she co-founded the group in February 2013. Today, DWHSA has more than 900 members in six countries.

"This promotion for Lisa reflects her tireless commitment to growing the association, as well as DWHSA's expanding status within the global travel industry," said John Hawks, DWHSA's administrator. "We look forward to great things under her continued leadership."

Sheldon will continue owning and managing her own destination wedding company.

DWHSA also announced that Cheryl Stewart, owner of From This Day Forward Travel in Pickerington, Ohio, is the first DWHSA member to earn the association's highest certification level: Certified Destination Wedding, Honeymoon, and Romance Travel Master Specialist.

Nearly 150 DWHSA members have achieved basic level certification. The Master Specialist level is about a year-long process, including developing a marketing plan and writing a white paper, as well as submitting experiential essays.
