Pros

The opportunity to effect change and make a difference in the organization. ASTA really has a great mission but needs to toot it's own horn more often to let travel agents, suppliers and the public know exactly what they do every day to promote the use of a travel agent and why the publice should use one.

Cons

Salaries are lower than most other companies in the travel industry. There are great employees who should be tapped for ideas on how to improve each of their respective departments so the association will experience more rapid growth.

Advice to Management

Allow more opportunity for employees to give feedback on how to manage budget and increase sales.

    Pros

    Friendly, knowledgeable and seasoned staff were eager to share their experience and teach the "next generation" of government affairs professionals. They have a wealth of industry and government know-how and they were always eager to share.

    Cons

    Despite being a small organization, there is still a divide between the various departments (membership, meetings and events, government affairs, etc) that can make sharing information and keeping up to date difficult across the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep providing these invaluable experiences to other young professionals who are looking to make thier start in DC. Your internship program was very mutually beneficial and I hope to see it grow and expand in years to come!
