At a meeting held on Dec. 16, TICO members voted to approve amendments to TICO By-law No. One.
The most significant change was with respect to the board composition. The seat held by the Canadian Institute of Travel Counsellors was eliminated and an additional elected at large position was added to the board. The third elected position will be open to an individual associated with either a Retail or Wholesale Registrant in good standing or with a Marketing Group of Registrants. An election for the new position will be held in 2015 and the results will be announced at the Annual General Meeting.
“I encourage eligible candidates to consider running for a position on the TICO Board,” said TICO president Michael Pepper. “It is a great opportunity to get involved and contribute to your industry.”
There were also changes to the by-law to remove gender-specific pronouns and to update references to the Act, Administrative Agreement and Ministry in the document.
