TTIA Rising Star Award
Deadline Extended Through Wednesday, July 20
Recognize a Rising Star in your organization by nominating them for TTIA's Rising Star Award!
A Rising Star is a young professional, 35 and younger, who has demonstrated outstanding leadership and innovation early in their career. It is a great way to recognize our young leaders for their achievements and contributions to the travel and tourism industry!
Along with industry recognition, the winner will be awarded a complimentary registration to the 2012 Travel and Tourism College. The 2011 Rising Star winner will also get the unique opportunity to sit on TTIA's Board of Directors as an Of Counsel* member for the 2012-2013 board cycle.
*Of Council board members are non-voting members of TTIA's Board of Directors.

Send a Student To Summit
Check the box to donate $60
We invite students from travel & tourism programs at our colleges and universities to attend the Monday programs of Texas Travel Summit
at a discounted rate of $60.
Some students cannot afford the $60 rate. Through the generosity of our members, we have been able to offer student scholarships to enable those students to attend. So far this year, Wildcatter Ranch and Phillips Entertainment Inc. have generously donated $60 each so that two students can attend Summit.
