The first ASTA Advocacy Awareness Day will take place live on the Society's Facebook page Wednesday, Sept. 30, from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. EST.
The event will focus on ASTA's advocacy efforts and how travel advisors can contribute. It is open to all travel advisors, whether or not they are ASTA members.
The event is being hosted by Vanessa McGovern, co-founder and chief sales officer of Gifted Travel Network, and Shannon Cunningham, owner of Paradise Vacation Escapes in Prairieville, La.
The two will run 15- to 20-minute sessions on the Facebook page throughout the day featuring a number of participants from the industry, including ASTA CEO Zane Kerby.
"The work ASTA has done for travel advisors is nothing short of heroic," McGovern said. "I am committed to raising awareness for the many initiatives and wins made by ASTA on behalf of travel advisors so that we can continue to rally around our trade association during this turbulent time."
