We tell our clients that “without an agent, you’re on your own.” As a travel professional, I honestly feel that without ASTA I would be on my own. There are industry issues that can’t be solved in a chat room or forum. I rely on ASTA to be the eyes and ears on all fronts so that I can concentrate on doing what I do best: selling travel.

When it comes to influencing public policy, trade associations like ASTA face a choice – hope the strength of your policy arguments wins the day, or buttress your policy work by engaging in the political process. Decisions are being made every day in Washington, D.C. and in state legislatures that will have an immediate and tangible impact on ASTA members’ bottom lines and the way they run their businesses. Airline ancillary fees, taxes on your service fees and independent contractor regulations are just a few examples.
With so much at stake, we as an industry can’t afford not to engage in the political process.
To ensure our voices are heard we must build up our collective political power, and that means building ASTAPAC. That’s why we need your support and contribution.
