About ATA

With the Africa Travel Association's 30th Jubilee Congress in 2005, the excitement is mounting as our magazine's editors and New York office staff are going through the archives in our effort to present a landmark souvenir capsule of ATA's progress up to the present time. The above profile is one important step in that direction, as the association's great strength is the caliber of people in its chapters and on its Board of Directors.
