ASTA Awards



Lifetime Achievement Award

This award is presented by ASTA following a recommendation from its Executive Committee. It is not an annual award, but is presented periodically to honor a travel industry luminary whose creativity, dedication and inspiration have advanced the travel and tourism industry.

It was renamed ASTA’s Lifetime Achievement Award in memory of Joseph R. Stone, to posthumously honor the Society’s only two-term president.
