Now that you mentioned it, I remember your application coming through as I'm originally from Chicago. I'm really glad to hear you investigated the site and that is how you found Tripatini. There are many benefits and frequently members do not discover them. I haven't checked your online profile, but that can really benefit you. PR people use it and it is what we include when submitting applications for press trips.
Welcome to the IFWTWA group on Tripatini. We look forward to your comments.
When you have the chance, you may want to check out www.ifwtwa.org and look at our benefits brochure in the lower left corner. This would help you determine if you feel it may be a good fit for you personally.
If you ever have any questions, please feel free to ask me.
