Message From The President

Hello TPOC Members,

Well, the 2022 Travel Professionals of Color, Conference and Trade Show is behind us. Our theme for the conference was “Turning Vision into Reality,” it was twenty years ago the vision took root. What a journey it has been. The emphasis this year was on Embracing the Gullah Geechee Culture. The response from this conference was over whelming. Many of you have since mirrored our itinerary and have taken groups back to the low country. Thank You, that is what is all about!

I am sad to announce Miriam Padilla has resigned as VP of Membership, however I am pleased that Stacey Lucas will be taken her place. Stacey has decided to create a membership committee of 2 to 3 individuals to produce various ideas to increase the membership and sustainability of our current membership. The first person to join her team is Donna Bruce with Sue Pat Travel agency of Maryland. Welcome Ms. Bruce to the team.

Colin and I just returned from a European cruise. Even though stricter guidelines are in place, folks are certainly traveling again. The ship was almost full, and the airplanes were packed. Remember, as you began to create new itineraries for your various groups do not forget to check with our partners for whatever assistant they can provide. I am sure they can guide you to the best hotels and help with anything you may need to make your group a success.

As you know, our next conference was schedule for May 15th, 2023, on the Royal Caribbean’s Brilliance of the Seas. To keep with a similar Greek Isles itinerary and due to maritime guidelines, we had to change our date to May 28th. With the change we have been upgraded to a newer vessel. We are now on Royal Caribbean’s Odyssey of the Seas, which is a newer ship and larger ship than the Brilliance of the Seas. We only have a few cabins left, so if you plan to join us next years you better do so soon. You can register on our website.

Enjoy the rest of your summer, within the next few days we will be enter into fall!

Betty Jones, President
