Welcome WITS Community!

What an amazing recovery this has been for our loved Travel Industry, and for many of our WITS members.  This year has seen unprecedented demand on our members, as travelers seek our professional advice and services, and our WITS Board of Directors is working for you to bring you a great lineup of opportunities this membership year.

One of our main focuses will be to work in the background to increase our membership and to explore new ways to benefit all members and preferred partners.  In this effort, should you know of potential members, please share information regarding our organization.  It is interesting to look at our bylaws and who we strive to serve.  Perhaps as you read our description of Members, think about who you may know and want to invite:

Membership is offered to persons involved in selling, directing or promoting passenger transportation and or travel.

Members should work with travel agencies, airlines, railroads, cruise lines, hotel organizations, tour operator organizations, bus and limousine companies, sightseeing companies, automobile organizations, publications devoted to the travel industry, travel and tourism faculty members and students of accredited institutions of higher learning to provide travel arrangements or other travel related services. 

As we try new ideas and formats for our events, I encourage you to offer your support and involvement in our meetings.  We can always use volunteers in various ways, and if you have ideas or are willing to assist, I encourage you to reach out to a board member or myself.

We all love our industry and have a passion for travel, thank you for including WITS in your list of organizations you collaborate with!

Working in Travel Services was established in 1975 to provide an educational forum and networking opportunities for travel advisors in the Capital New York region.  Working in Travel Services (WITS) hosts monthly meetings in the Albany, Troy, Schenectady and Saratoga, New York area.  
The membership consists of active travel advisors, cruise line representatives, hoteliers, tourist office representatives and other travel vendors.  In addition to monthly meetings, WITS hosts an annual tradeshow called “Meet Your Rep”, familiarization trips, educational seminars, cruise inspections and a summer picnic.

For over 45 years WITS has been an important resource for travel advisors in New York state.
