MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

LINDA TAN

LINDA TAN

President - NAITAS National

I am truly honored to be part of this incredible opportunity to handle and lead our association to new heights.  I am thankful for the chance to prove myself capable of continuing the legacies left by our immediate past president, Hon. Wanda Teo, now the Secretary of the Department of Tourism.  She has done a wonderful job at keeping the association’s funds from downturns through the famed NAITAS Travel and Trade Show.  I would also like to acknowledge all of the past presidents who did their part that made NAITAS reach its current potentials and now one of the respected tourism associations in the country.

My participation and being active as a member of the board then during the term of past president, Rosemarie Galang, gave me the chance to learn first-hand about many of the important activities in which NAITAS is currently involved.  The main focus of my term is to ensure the continued prioritization of the following:

1.  Members’ professional and personal development through seminars, product updates and familiarization tours.

2.  Expand networks on local and international tourism organization and association.

3.  Acquire NAITAS permanent office.

4.  Be involved in the Community Service as our way of paying forward and contributing to the well-being of the Filipino people.

5.  Help promote the Department of Tourism’s campaign on “Sustainable Tourism”.

Those would not be possible without the continued service and support of our valued Board of Trustees, Chapter Presidents, Members and Partners in the industry.

Thank you for the continued support, commitment and dedication to NAITAS.  Let’s work together in making NAITAS great!
