Every regional election brings with it a new team and the TAAI Western Region has chosen Sameer Karnani as its Chairman for the next term.
The Travel Agents Association of India (TAAI) has conducted its regional and chapter elections and the results are out. The Western Region elections that took place on July 24, 2017, in Mumbai named Sameer Karnani, currently serving as the association’s Regional Secretary, as its Chairman for the new term. Sampat Damani and Madhuri Kanga, who were the last Chairman and Treasurer, respectively, for the Western Region, have stepped down. Revealing this is Sampat Damani, Chairman – Western Region, TAAI, who will continue to retain this position until the National Committee elections are held later this year. He says, “The National Committee elections will be held around the third week of September. There is a request for me to stand for the national elections. We will take a call on that in due course of time.” Meanwhile, the national convention has been kept on hold as TAAI has asked for different dates. “A lot of work has gone into Kunming so there is a chance we will go ahead with it and carry on as planned with a new set of dates. Else we will have to look at other destinations,” Damani adds.
