Travel Agent Appreciation

ACTA Launches COVID-19 Advocacy Fund

“A heartfelt thank you to the travel industry for all of your words of encouragement that have been shared with ACTA during the current industry crisis,” writes ACTA president, Wendy Paradis in a letter to the association’s membership.

ACTA’s president tells members: “Know that we will continue to advocate and lobby governments and stand up for you every step of the way. We understand what you and your business are going through right now, and how important it is for you to have access to resources and get the answers you need to help navigate through these unprecedented times.”

In this respect, Paradis points out: “ACTA’s mission is to foster the success and prosperity of our travel agency members. COVID-19 has affected every aspect of the travel industry, and rest assured that we are working in every corner. ACTA is laser focused on defending the 14,000 Travel Agencies and 24,000 Travel Agents throughout Canada.”

And she tells members that: “Having you stand with us is crucial and your support during our recent letter writing campaign went a long way in moving the needle at all levels of government.”

So, writes Paradis: “If you are not a current member of ACTA know that we are fighting for you too. When you are ready to become a member of ACTA, we will be proud to have you stand with us.”

ACTA’s president continues: “We know times are very tough right now but if you are in a position to help us in any way, we could really use your support as there are considerable costs attached to our lobbying efforts that benefit all travel agencies, travel agents and independent contractors. Consider donating to the ACTA Covid-19 Advocacy Recovery Fund.”

Paradis tells members: “From now until Travel Agent Day (May 6, 2020), we are offering a $50 savings on any ACTA membership or certification programs. Perhaps with more ‘free time’, achieving your professional certification will help set you apart when business starts to pick back up, and it will pick back up.”
