JW Marriott Starr Pass Employees Honored by NRTA
One tradition of NRTA Expanding Knowledge Conferences that many don't know about, is the selection of one or more employees at the host resort to be recognized for their superior service during the conference. Recipients receive a symbolic Gold Key award and a cash bonus award for their efforts. This year we're proud to recognize Mercedes Vasquez (shown below with Paul Kinney and Lisa Krizek) and Andrew Lopez (not shown).

NRTA Conference Unveils Community Outreach Program
A group of NRTA volunteers kicked off their Expanding Knowledge conference experience in Tucson, AZ by working side-by-side with the kids and staff at a local Boys and Girls Club.
