Passport Online is the preferred vendor to provide custom websites for ASTA's 36 chapters.

Chapter presidents will have the chance to sign up for NexCite, Passport Online's customizable website solution.

A partnership between ASTA and Passport Online was announced earlier this year during a chapter presidents' meeting held in Dallas. Passport Online said at least 12 chapters have expressed interest in signing up for a website.

"For our organization to be able to customize the tools we have created for travel agencies, to now help the ASTA chapter presidents facilitate information sharing to their members, is a great opportunity," said Marilyn Macallair, Passport Online's vice president of business development.

The company powers more than 6,000 agency websites through its NexCite, NexCite for Host Agencies and VacationPort products.
