CLIA Helps Small Businesses

The Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) has launched an online program to help travel agencies deal with the everyday minutiae of running a business. CLIA's new Your Business Resource Center was designed as a "one-stop shop" for many of the necessities of running a small business, such as insurance, training resources, financial services, destination information and business management. An exclusive benefit of CLIA membership, the tool provides easy access to all these services.

"One of CLIA's top priorities is to develop innovative ways to help our members maximize their productivity and business efficiency," said CLIA's president and CEO, Terry Dale. "The new online tool will enable our members to save time and effort." Visit http://www.cruising.org. (DE)
