LIKES BM&T ONLINE PUBLICATION I recently was introduced to your wonderful publication online. I just had to write and tell you how refreshing and excited I am to see such a great product for our market. I’ve owned my own travel business for 15 years and currently teach travel and tourism at Austin Community College in the Hospitality, Event Planning and T&T department. I’m also a grad student at the University of Illinois in their recreation/sport/tourism program. My hope is to continue with my PHd in tourism after graduation in May. I will make sure my students know of your publication and I will do what I can to spread the word to my co-workers and past clients. Thank you for taking the lead and reinforcing our industry and professionals. Continued from page 5 council?fbid=2r2iwQpHol7 September 29 8th Annual Hispanic Television Summit, New York, NYC.
