THE Australian Federation of Travel Agents has appointed Graham McDonald as the new chairman of the ATAS Code Compliance Monitoring Committee (ACCMC).
McDonald, who is on a two-year term commencing 01 Nov, joins the committee with decades of experience “at the highest level of the law” across a range of industries, according to AFTA ceo Jayson Westbury.
“Mr McDonald currently serves as the chairman of the Financial Planning Association Conduct Review Commission, so also brings experience interacting with associations and compliance,” Westbury said.
The ACCMC hears complaints against ATAS accredited travel agents, and also monitors compliance with the ATAS Code of Conduct and Charter.
Westbury hailed outgoing chairman Steven Heller, who has served on the ACCMC over the last two years, for his “support and dedication to the ATAS scheme over this time”.
