In an ongoing effort to cultivate and retain a new and younger crop of travel agents, the American Society of Travel Agents recently hosted its fourth annual Young Professional Society retreat on Royal Caribbean's Liberty of the Seas. "The young people in the industry are our lifeline," said Cheryl Hudak, ASTA's president and CEO. "They will be the ones to implement future travel trends and develop new ways to attract and retain customers." Onboard training sessions included a RCCL brand update, guided ship tours and a discussion on ASTA membership benefits. Moreover, the group had the chance to network with one another and build future contacts. To learn more about ASTA's Young Professional Society, visit [www.astanet.com].
