Call for nominations: 2025 NTA Board of Directors

The NTA Nominating Committee is now accepting applications from tour operators, tour suppliers, and destination marketing organization representatives interested in serving on the 2025 NTA Board of Directors. Please contact Jennifer Royse to receive the application and more details.  Applications are due Friday, Aug. 9, by 5 p.m. ET.

NTA’s election process ensures a strong board leadership for its future. Here’s the step-by-step process for nominations and elections:

  1. A call for nominations is issued in Tuesday. Contact Jennifer Royse  for one of these open positions:
  • Three tour operator positions for three-year terms
  • One tour supplier position for three-year term
  • One DMO position for three-year term
  • One DMO position for a one-year term
  • NTA secretary (must have served at least one year on the board)
  • NTA Vice Chair (must have served at least two years on the board)
  1. The Nominating Committee will vet all applications and conduct interviews with applicants.
  2. The Nominating Committee will then nominate one candidate per position for the board slate, being mindful of qualifications and business type.
  3. Once the slate of candidates is announced in September, members who were not nominated can complete an application by Sept. 24 to run from the floor and be placed on the ballot.
  4. When elections open in September, members will receive a ballot and can vote on each position individually, including candidates from the floor. Operators will vote for operator candidates and officers, suppliers for supplier candidates, and DMOs for DMO candidates.
  5. A virtual Annual Business Meeting will be held Nov. 7, where members can meet the candidates. Voting will close at 5 p.m. that day.

The 2025 NTA Board will be introduced during Travel Exchange.
