What we're about
NACTA, The National Association of Career Travel Agents, was established in 1986 as the original association with a mission to represent the interests of independent and home based travel entrepreneurs. Host travel agencies and Supplers who support this growing sector of the distribution channel are also members of NACTA. NACTA continues its objective to promote the professionalism and recognition of this productive group of travel agents. However, the Association has recently expanded its role to focus on the development and training of it members, to enhance and secure their success in retail travel sales. Our new mission statement says it all: The National Association of Career Travel Agents (NACTA) is the foremost Travel Industry Association dedicated to providing the finest education, training, networking and representation in support of Career Travel Agents. Our Suppliers and Host Agency partners find NACTA members to have a strong reputation and are highly regarded as the best of the independent and home based agents. We work to provide an exceptional forum not only for members to network with each other but also for members to make connections and learn about our strategic partners. NACTA is a wholly owned affiliate of ASTA, the American Society of Travel Agents. ASTA and NACTA, while separate associations, work to protect and enhance the entire retail distribution channel. If you are serious about selling travel then you need to join the association that represents the best independent travel agents and strives to make them better, NACTA!
