The Incentive Marketing Association has
launched two new strategic industry groups: the Incentive Travel
Council and the Recognition Council. The councils are
segment-specific subgroups of the incentive industry that were
launched because previously there were no special-interest groups
for these segments of the industry. Steve Maselko, vice president
of operations for Marriott Individual Incentives, is president of
the Travel Council's board; Peter Hart, CEO of Rideau Recognition
Solutions, is president of the Recognition Council board.
Next year, the Society of Incentive
& Travel Executives will launch a fundraising event to benefit
the ISITE foundation, the organization's new fund-raising arm. The
event will take place Sept. 23 in Chicago, the night before the
annual Motivation Show kicks off.
