Editorials from the Chair

Greetings and salutations fellow IATM members. Hopefully this newsletter finds you while enjoying a busy Spring schedule. It is just a couple of more weeks, or months, until the season is over for most of us. I would like to encourage you to keep a relaxed and dynamic pace so you can get through this last concentration of tours in stride. Sometimes taking some extra minutes for ourselves will pay dividends during the next couple of days or couple of tours. We owe it to our clients to keep a consistent level of quality. If you are not able to do one more tour at the end of the season, please ask yourself if your last tour was as good or better then your first tour of the season.

Greetings and salutations my fellow traveling professionals. The sun is reaching its summer zenith which means that we are in the peak of our season. I hope this newsletter finds you working as much as you would like and enjoying all the benefits of our profession. Our occupation is often difficult, though we try to make it look effortless. Every good tour company is on the lookout for a personable miracle worker. You know; the one that can do anything at anytime with a smile on his/her face. So how can we get closer to becoming that model Tour Manager?

Greeting and salutations my fellow Tour Managers and Tour Guides. Yes, we are now including Tour Guides amongst our ranks. This is just one of many new ideas that have come into effect after our recent Board of Directors meeting in early November. Held at the famous Soroptimist Club in London, the board met for three days of informative and productive meetings.

Greetings and salutations my fellow touring professionals. I hope this newsletter finds you in the middle of a full spring schedule. The Board of Directors has been busy over the winter. We have finalized many of the arrangements for the Convention in Vietnam as well the study tour to Portugal. You will be able to find more information on these great opportunities in the international newsletter.

Greetings and salutations my fellow traveling professionals. I was recently asked why I joined IATM and why I wanted to serve on the Board of Directors. Personally I joined so I could realize the professionalism that exists in this largely unregulated industry. I wanted to learn of the possibilities of making a living and I wanted to meet my on the road comrades in a friendly social setting. Soon I will have been a member for ten years. During this time, I have fulfilled my original purposes for joining IATM. I am now making a good living. I feel respected for making a difficult job look easy. And all those on the road comrades are now friends with whom we form and extended network of brothers and sisters who are always willing to help.

Greetings and salutations to my fellow touring professionals. 2006 is shaping up to be a banner year for IATM for our membership is on the rise. More and more Tour Managers are discovering IATM as a way to stay informed about industry trends, make contacts, get new jobs and make life long friends. The work that we put into IATM now affects a growing membership. There is an inherent reward in helping more and more people and I hope that this creates a perpetual feeling of goodwill that touches you to get involved in this member driven organization.

Greetings and salutations my fellow traveling professionals. This past winter hosted two Board of Director’s meetings which furthered our ongoing adaptation to the changing worldwide touring environment. Realizing that many Tour Managers are also Tour Guides the Board has taken the historic step of allowing Tour Guides to join IATM. This can only serve to widen the pool of prospective members and hence give us a stronger voice in the industry.
