Dear ACTA member,
Since starting my new journey as ACTA President in late May I have spent much of my time travelling the country and speaking with Travel Agency members to understand your priorities and align them with ACTA's Strategic Plan. Throughout this journey, I have found the passion and dedication that ACTA members invest in the industry extremely inspiring. It is an honor for me to hear first hand, the views and outlooks from the people who make travel happen, whether dream vacations or corporate itineraries, you are all amazing at what you do and we are proud to be representing your interests. I hope if we have not had the opportunity to speak personally, that we will have a chance to connect at one of ACTA’s premium events taking place across the country in 2017.
We are reaching out to you today to remind you that if you have not already, it is time to renew your membership that expired on December 31. To rnew your membership contact your regional office. As a member of ACTA, you are part of the organization that has been representing your interests since 1977, and with your support, we will continue to work on your behalf as the most longstanding credible voice for travel professionals.
Your membership dollars are put to work towards. . .
