Members of the Travel Agents Association of India (TAAI) elected office-bearers and a Managing Committee for the 2-year term (2015-17) at the 64th AGM held on September 30, 2015, in Mumbai.

Team TAAI Positive emerged victorious with a sweeping majority. Sunil Kumar R., who headed TAAI Positive, has been elected as President, Marzban Antia has been voted as Vice President, Lokesh Bettaiah as the Honorary Secretary General, and Jay Bhatia as Honorary Treasurer.

The new Managing Committee of TAAI includes R. Venkatachalam, Imtiaz Qureshi, Bhagwan Ramnani, Devaki Thiagarajan, Shreeram Patel, Anil Kumar, and Jyoti Mayal.

Talking to the media after the election results were announced, Mr. Sunil Kumar said it is a rewarding result and he is very very excited that the entire team has won. He thanked the members for their faith in the team and said that the Team TAAI Positive will go all out to attempt meeting the expectations of the members. The focus will be on trying to guide members into a changing industry era where the challenges will be many, while opportunities too will multiply.

To a question on what would be the key focus, he remarked that TAAI will do all possible to boost its positive image levels and take TAAI to its much-awaited next level. It will be our endeavour to lead members from the “today-we-exist” into an environment called “tomorrow,” rather than trying to get the tomorrows to meet our todays. He added that this is one way to make the association relevant in a changing environment, and evolution being the order of the day, their approaches and practices must change. Thus training will be an ongoing process to ensure that members can be successful in the current environment.

He was happy that the members who had attended the AGM were very cooperative and supported the election process which was an almost zero defect process.

He added that the immediate agenda will be to design their planning, and form committees to assign an agenda and accountability to their members. Among the things they need to do is to get a closer connectivity with the government.

He once again thanked members for their support and invited them to join the initiative to drive TAAI forward to its most deserved position.
