The ITAA was founded in 1971 and, since then, has represented Ireland’s Travel Agents and Tour Operators. The Association brings together approximately 100 member companies covering 140 branches in different towns and cities throughout the Republic of Ireland.
Like many other representative organisations the ITAA is a company limited by guarantee. The Irish Travel Agents Association Ltd is governed by its annual general meeting (AGM), at which all members have equal rights.
The AGM elects a Board, comprising a President, a Treasurer and eight other members drawn from businesses in membership of the Association. (The Board can increase its membership to a maximum of 12 by co-option).
The day to day work of the Association is undertaken by the Executive Team led by the Chief Executive.
The Association arranges various national and regional members’ meetings as well as holding an important annual conference. We also facilitate a considerable amount of “on-line networking” amongst members using electronic newsletters, discussion forums and the members’ area of our website.
Irish Travel Agents Association is has a private office at 20 Molesworth Street, Dublin 2.
