Chairman’s Corner – 2019


Hello all,

I am excited to be your SAN PATA 2019 Chairman, and have a lot of great events along with educational programs planned for 2019.

In 2019, our hard working Board is bringing the world to you with amazing vendor programs and educational tools to help you grow your business and how to increase your sales through social media, just to name a few.

As your Board Chairman, my goal is to increase awareness in the Asian Markets as it relates to you, the travel professionals. We have amazing events planned for 2019 including, Australia, Hawaii, Domestic Travel (No Passports No Worries), San Diego Airport Tour (new international terminal), All About Asia, Cruise Night and the San Diego Travel Professional Holiday Party. All of or great programs are listed on our website.

I would like to thank our vendors; we could not do our events and educationals without you. They are hard at work providing amazing events and education to you, our travel professionals, along with travel media by offering specials and donating your products for the agents to experience.

Our Board membership committee has done a great job by increasing membership to over 120 agents.  This includes Orange County and Desert Cities. We offer specials throughout the year for new and returning members and we keep our membership cost down for all to join.

As a Board, we are meeting in June to plan our 2020 events and welcome your suggestions. My goal is to get the dates on the calendar for you to plan your year in advance.

I have an amazing, hardworking Board and welcome any suggestions, comments or if you want to join our Board, please let me know!  

Thank you!
