Chamber of Commerce Grassroots Campaign Members Only - Please Login

Various Chambers of Commerce across the country have entered into the travel business, arranging and selling tour packages to community members. These activities undercut the business activities of the organizations’ own members—local travel agencies and tour operators. In some cases, the Chamber adds insult to injury by using travel companies that are not even Chamber members.

This issue has become, and rightly so, a serious matter of concern for travel agencies and tour operators across the country who are already facing numerous challenges in their struggle to stay in business, only to find themselves in competition with the very organization that purports to support them. ASTA has prepared a grassroots public relations plan for its members who find themselves in competition with their own Chamber to use in alerting the media and their communities to this unfair practice.
