The American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA) is calling on agency members to participate in the 2017 ASTA Research Family survey program. ASTA members who are chosen and who fulfill the survey requirements will earn a $60 credit toward their 2018 annual dues when they renew.
The information collected is critical for benchmarking agency members’ day-to-day operations and is essential when ASTA advocates for travel agencies with the government and with the press. Your participation gives us perspective and insight into the realities of running a travel agency today so that we can better represent and serve you. We hope that you take advantage of this great opportunity to participate in the program.
See details here to learn how you and your agency can be eligible for a $60 credit (a limit of one credit for each agency) toward your 2018 ASTA membership dues.
More information on ASTA research reports can also be found on ASTA.org the Research Papers page under Publications. And don’t forget that ASTA membership includes preferential pricing for these reports, and in some cases complimentary access. Full reports are also available for purchase and download in the ASTA Store.
