Dawn Rueckl of Wells Gray Tours in Penticton will serve on the NTA Canadian Task Force for 2012.

The group will focus on enhancing programs and benefits for NTA’s Canadian members, said Jim Reddekopp Jr., chairman of the 3,000-member association.

“Dawn’s leadership helps NTA in so many ways,” said Reddekopp. “She accomplishes work that’s critical to the success of the association in Canada, and serving as a volunteer, she sets a tremendous example.”

Rueckl welcomes the challenge of leadership.

“Travel brings joy to people and vitality to local economies,” she said. “I’m proud to work in the tourism industry and pleased to have the opportunity to advance it through NTA.”

Rueckl and the task force will meet throughout the year in their work for NTA, the leading association for professionals serving travellers to, from and within North America.

Founded in 1951, NTA (formerly the National Tour Association) helps its members, representing more than 40 countries, to expand their market reach with innovative business ideas and opportunities for collaboration.
