CTA Spotlight - Tyler Baum - Click Here To Read More

 

Tyler Baum personifies one of the top CTA rules about Going the Extra Mile. As a technology advisor for Marco, the miles rack up as he sees current Marco customers and engages new clients throughout the Cumberland Valley. What sets Tyler apart from other sales people, and what makes him a stellar CTA, is his ability to listen and his enthusiasm for going above and beyond customer expectations.

Volunteering Is Good For The Soul - by Denise Bonura, CTA - Shippensburg News Chronicle - Click Here To Read More

 

For the past several years, I have tried to give back to the communities I've lived in by volunteering when possible.  My busy schedule doesn't allot much time to do as much as I would like, but whenever I find time to give back, it always feels incredible.

On The Other End of a Certified Tourism Ambassador Experience - Deltaville, VA - by Nancy Godfrey, CTA - CTA Newsletter Editor - Click Here To Read More

 

What does it feel like to be on the receiving end of a Certified Tourism Ambassador?  My husband and I recently took a vacation that took us to some well-known tourist destinations and to places less known.  We visited Myrtle Beach, Key West, Miami, and several places in the Caribbean.
