The Outbound Tour Operators Association of India (OTOAI) hosted an ‘Extraordinary General Meeting’ to postpone the election of Executive Committee by one year.
Riaz Munshi, President, OTOAI, addressed the gathering by highlighting the crucial matter for postponement of elections of the Association for Executive Committee for One Year keeping in view the Rules and Regulations of OTOAI and Societies Act.
The decision was taken due to the Covid 19 Pandemic which has lasted for the last 18 months, the term of the present Executive Committee needs an extension to complete the objects for which they were elected. The decision was sanctioned by all the members present over there without any obligation due to the present unavoidable circumstances.
Shravan Bhalla, General Secretary, OTOAI said that the Association wanted to a Convention in Turkey in March 2020, but it got postponed due to the Covid 19 Pandemic. The Present EC is still in talks with the Turkish Tourism to hold the Convention in the year 2022.
“The convention will most probably be held in March 2022 in Turkey only if things go well. And if that didn’t have to be happening then things are seriously not going well in the Industry,” Munshi opined.
