Happy Summer!

We are at the beginning of a more promising summer as people hit the road or take to the skies to embark on much-anticipated travel adventures. After sixteen months of staying put, it is no wonder that we are eager to get out! To that end, be sure and read the latest issue of TravelWorld International Magazine for ideas on where to visit. Just a reminder that the magazine is written and photographed by our members and is a popular member benefit.

Thank you to those who attended our NATJA Virtual Conference & Marketplace. We appreciate you for supporting this effort. We all learned a lot! The responses we received were overwhelmingly positive, with special emphasis on networking, where members engaged with old friends and made new ones, and got to know one another better during the happy hour games. Thanks again to our team, Rick Bielke, Yani Leon, Laura Nuño, and Omar Rodriguez for working diligently to make this happen. If you missed the conference, but would like to view the sessions, contact us at conference@natja.org for details. A small fee may apply.

Remember to save the dates, May 3rd – May 6th, 2022 for our long-anticipated NATJA Conference in Puerto Rico! We will share more details in the coming weeks.

On July 15th, our Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA) Committee continues our “Telling Our Stories” series profiling media member Cory Lee and Vickie Ashford-Thompson, Director of Travel Media for the Great Birmingham CVB. Be sure and RSVP for this inspiring event.

We wish all of our Canadian members a happy Canada Day and to our U.S. members, a happy 4th of July!

Stay safe and enjoy this beautiful time of the year!
