With the leadership of Bob Dew, our chapter members actively use our online Travel Site.
How it works: Every time travel is arranged through an online travel website, travel companies pay commissions for your reservation. When travel is booked on our new website our chapter will receive 60% of these commissions paid as royalties! This is an exciting program that we will make available to our supporters. They can visit the website, book their personal travel and Chapter 528 will receive our share of the commissions. But we also need to take advantage of the program internally to maximize the funding from this program.
If you are familiar with booking travel online, you shouldn't have any trouble navigating the new website. The site functions in a similar manner to other travel websites such as Expedia and Orbitz. Some of the key features you will find on the website include:
