ABA Forms Alliance With Travel Professionals Of Color

Posted on April 29, 2009 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The American Bus Association (ABA) and the Travel Professionals of Color (TPOC) have formed a partnership to increase networking and business development opportunities for their respective members.

TPOC was founded in 2002 by two minority travel agents who wanted to create awareness within the travel industry that professional and qualified minority travel professionals are available.

Each year since 2003, TPOC has hosted an annual conference designed to promote the training, networking, and support of minority travel professionals, and to help travel agents and other travel professionals reach the multicultural travel market.

This year's conference will take place on May 14-17, 2009 at the Adam's Mark Buffalo hotel in Buffalo, NY.

"We believe that a partnership between ABA and TPOC has excellent synergies for both of our organizations, and there is ample opportunity for growth in terms of new members and new business," said ABA Assistant Director for Member Services Roderick Lewis.

The partnership will include the co-branding of each association's conferences, special introductory member offers, and internet brand exposure on each other's websites.

"Working with ABA will help Travel Professionals of Color promote the continued expansion of diversity within the group travel industry," said Betty Jones, vice president of TPOC for Membership & Finance.
