"An association of 2,500 travel planners, serving the African American community. Travel Industry of America (TIA) reports that the African American community travels twice as often on a group package tour as the population as a whole, and we at AATC act as the source between these Travel Planners and the Travel Industry. We look forward to visiting with you at the next Annual AATC Confrence to increase your travel skills or reach the travel groups of this vast and welcoming audience." - AATC
