However, there are a few simple steps that any ASTA member can take to ensure they’re accessing the most crucial benefits of ASTA. The following list is what the ASTA membership team feels is the most important.
Download the ASTA logo
Under the resources tab on ASTA.org you can find the ASTA logo to download and use on your business cards, on your agency web site, marketing materials and even your email signature. This lets your current and future clients know that you are a member of your trade association.
Complete your ASTA profile
Make sure you fill out your personal profile and upload a headshot. Your member profile appears on ASTA.org. Consumers can request trip quotes and search for travel advisors by location and expertise.
Connect with your local chapter president
This is an opportunity to make local connections and attend events around your area where you can meet local supplier partners.
Register for an ASTA event
Whether this is our annual Global Convention, our Legislative Day, or an Educational Journey; ASTA gives you an opportunity to increase your industry and destination knowledge.
Enroll in the Verified Travel Advisor (VTA) program
This program is comprised of nine courses developed by ASTA's in-house experts and outside business and industry professionals. VTA members gain the expertise and in-demand skills needed to enhance their business and career.
