Travel Agent Appreciation

TICO elections

At its meeting following TICO’s Annual General Meeting held at the Toronto Congress Centre on Sept. 18, TICO’s new board of directors named Jim Diebel as vice-chair of the board of directors. Jim Diebel is the president of Hanover Holiday Tours in Hanover, Ont. The vice-chair appointment is for one year until TICO’s next AGM in 2013. Jim Diebel was also the successful candidate to the TICO board of directors for a two-year position that was open to a wholesale registrant and won by acclamation, as TICO only received one nomination for the position. The chair of the board of directors is for a three-year term and is currently held by Michael Janigan, Special Counsel, Consumer and Regulatory Affairs for the Public Interest Advocacy Centre. Michael Janigan is one of five ministerial appointees on the board. TICO’s board of directors also welcomes Louise Gardiner, senior director, Leisure Travel Canada for Carlson Wagonlit Travel in Toronto to the board of directors as ACTA’s new appointee. Retiring board members include Mike Foster of Uniglobe Instant Travel and Denise Heffron of Transat Holidays. (
