"When I decided to make this my lifetime profession, I felt strongly about the need to, not only belong, but to support ASTA. I believe that membership is key in professional credibility to the consumer. ASTA is our legislative watchdog for action regarding changes in laws or taxes affecting our industry. It is difficult to imagine a world without ASTA."  Jan Hammond, CTC, MCC, DS, Post Haste Travel
 "Given the complexity of the travel agency business and the ever changing political landscape, it is important for my company to have a voice on a national level. ASTA provides me with that voice. Being left on our own as an individual fighting for a level playing field is not very appealing for me or my future success."  Tom Jackson, CTIE President, World Travel Bureau
"Brownell supports ASTA because our industry needs a voice and an advocate. When decisions are made in Congress they often impact our clients or associates in ways legislators can’t see. We need ASTA to address bad legislation before it is made into law. We can’t do that well as individual companies, but together we have a voice."    Troy Haas President & CEO, BROWNELL
