NTA Leader to Receive Santini Award
March 21, 2012
Mark Hoffmann, CTP, will receive the James D. Santini Award during the Grassroots Congressional Travel Summit in Washington, D.C., set for May 8-10.
The award, determined by the NTA Government Relations Committee, recognizes individuals who, over time, have made significant contributions to NTA’s advocacy efforts. Hoffmann more than fits the bill, said Steve Richer, public affairs advocate for NTA.
"Mark has been such a bird dog in getting things done: promoting government relations within the association, being a strong advocate and meeting with officials both in Washington and in California, and helping meet sponsorship needs," Richer said. "In every way, Mark understands GR and makes sure we are focused on it."
Hoffmann, who has presided as NTA chairman and has served on many committees, is currently vice chairman of the association. The award is named in honor of Jim Santini, who served for more than 25 years as NTA’s legislative counsel. Santini will be part of the presentation ceremony during the NTA TourPAC Breakfast on May 9. For more information about this year’s Summit, click here.
