PTANA, New Jersey Chapter President

Welcome and thank you for visiting the New Jersey Chapter Professional Travel Agents of North America’s Website (PTANA).

We endeavor to provide relevant and timely information about the changing world of a professional Travel Agent and our Travel Partner Suppliers.

Please be sure to return to our website often for updates, view our “News” calendar of upcoming events, and plan to attend our monthly “Meetings”.

PTANA Agents are the client’s personal solution to a world of Global Travel.

A Travel Agent’s ability to understand the requirements of our clients and provide the best value and service is paramount to our core business. Our knowledge and understanding of the industry keeps us competitive in the travel market.

Travel Agents with the New Jersey Chapter of PTANA have a wealth of knowledge and share resources on which we draw to support our clients and grow our business.

The strength of our chapter depends on our agent network, our Travel Partner Suppliers and the New Jersey community in which we serve.

The New Jersey Chapter of PTANA desires to be a resource for the community. We want to be visible and viable. Our social and charitable interactions with the community, drives our service and strengthens our organization.

We recognize the strength of the Travel Agent is directly interconnected to the community they serve.

So, on behalf of the member of the New Jersey Chapter of PTANA, we invite you to join us.

There is room for growth. There is room for you.
