NTA Connects with IGLTA
May 31, 2016
The National Tour Association has joined in a strategic partnership with the International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association. The two organizations are renewing an alliance that provides avenues of collaboration in education and membership.
“NTA has many members who also belong to IGLTA, and we’d like to increase the number of shared members,” said Pam Inman, NTA president. “We look forward to working with our friends at IGLTA to facilitate business connections that will result in remarkable itineraries and memorable travel experiences.”
IGLTA’s leader is equally enthusiastic about the partnership. “IGLTA looks forward to sharing its expertise in the LGBT market with NTA members and for our members to benefit from the resources of this well-respected travel association,” said IGLTA President/CEO John Tanzella. “Our goal is to expand membership and increase event participation for both of our associations through this collaboration.”
Representatives from each association will attend the other organization’s annual convention, and whenever possible, IGLTA and NTA will work together to share information and ideas that benefit members of both associations.
