Thank you for voting on the New Media Membership/Requalification Policy. In total, 150 votes were cast. I am pleased to report that 68%, or a total of 102 media and industry members voted in favour of TMAC adopting this new policy. Moving forward, our Executive Director will begin implementing the new policy when vetting new members and requalifying existing members.

I would also like to reiterate that our Media Membership Criteria Committee, National Board and Executive Director will take all future recommendations regarding policy changes under advisement. We appreciate that this is an organic and evolutionary process that should be revisited on a regular basis to ensure the policy remains fair and equitable while continuing to reinforce TMAC’s mission statement of excellence in travel journalism.

On behalf of the National Board and the Media Membership Criteria Committee, I thank you for taking part in the process.
