Alexandria, V.A., December 8, 2022 — The American Society of Travel Advisors (ASTA) sends congratulations to Avoya Travel Network for launching their new travel advisor education platform, Travel Agent Education Powered by AvoyaTM, which includes ASTA Membership for enrollees upon completion of the program.

Avoya Travel Network is ASTA’s third major host agency partner in 2022 to incorporate ASTA membership into their program’s suite of benefits—reinforcing the importance of advocacy and the work ASTA does on behalf of the industry.   

“Avoya Travel Network has been a steadfast supporter and friend of ASTA, starting with Van and Brad Anderson and now Jeff and Michael Anderson. It has been exciting to watch this next generation of leadership get actively involved with ASTA’s advocacy initiatives,” said Zane Kerby, President & CEO of ASTA. “Educating the next generation of travel advisors, is not something to be taken lightly. We have a great responsibility to our industry and the traveling public and we commend Avoya Travel Network on making sure ASTA Membership is incorporated into their program. All travel advisors and agencies, big and small, need to be a part of their national trade association and need to take their own professional development and business ownership seriously.”   

"The robust curriculum, unmatched support from known travel industry leaders and experts, as well as the included CLIA and ASTA memberships, make this new education platform a true gamechanger for those seeking a successful career in travel. Now more than ever, professional and knowledgeable travel agents are in high demand." said Steve Hirshan, Senior Vice President of Sales at Avoya Travel. “
