In a recent interaction with members, Vishwas Makhija, President, ATOAI, apprised them on the initiatives undertaken by the Association such as restructuring of the sub-committees, formation of a women’s task force, and ensuring more interactive meetings in the future as well.
Vishwas Makhija claims that since being elected the President of Adventure Tour Operators Association of India (ATOAI), he and his able team have dug deep into the Association’s functioning and addressed various other fronts as well. “These are still tough days for all of us, though domestic travel has picked up a bit and there is light at the end of the tunnel. But, our colleagues who handle inbound still need to hold on for a couple of months till the trickling in of tourists begins. The good thing is that we have started our vaccinations here and for now, it is moving ahead in a well-planned manner.These are still early days for this team, but steady progress is being made,” he said, addressing members.
Website revamp and committee formations
Makhija also shared that his team had finalised a vendor for a revamp of the ATOAI website and that work had already begun on that front. ATOAI committee formations have also been completed. “Volunteer work in various committees is truly appreciated by the members. We need more active participation in our committees as we move ahead and surely, more hands are needed to achieve the goals we have set out for ourselves. I look forward to members’ participation and being part of the ATOAI journey. The future leadership of ATOAI is within current members,” he said.
The Association President said that it would soon resume physical members’ meets and that his team is already working on such a meeting either within Delhi or around it. “It has been a rather long time since we all got together. The ATOAI team is doing its best to add more value to the membership,” he concluded.
