My name is Raylene Murray and I am the President of the Central Las Vegas PTANA Chapter. As the first PTANA chapter west of the Mississippi, I look forward to serving you in 2020 and 2021. As a “Recruiting” chapter we are still in the development phase of building our membership.  That can be accomplished through your word of mouth.

As Travel Professionals, we are in a business that demands education and knowledge of products.  This education is paramount to our business and to the responsibility we have to our clients.  We also need guidance and experience from other Travel Professionals who have been in this business a while, cruise or wedding specialist who specialize in a cornucopia of niche markets.

This is where the Central Las Vegas Chapter will shine.  At monthly meetings we will introduce you to a variety of suppliers in all areas of travel to educate and keep you abreast of our ever changing industry.  You will have the opportunity to develop a relationship with cruise lines, tour operators, tourist boards, hoteliers and organizations. We also look forward to our meetings being an intimate place to mingle among other travel professionals, both Home Based or brick and mortar, who have the same goals as you – knowledge, friendship, comradery and growing their business.

I hope you will join us monthly to learn, have fun and interact with other members of our chapter.  Only your participation and membership can truly make us Vegas Strong.

I look forward to seeing you at our future meetings.

Raylene Murray
President, Central Las Vegas PTANA Chapter
