ABSTRACT
The article reports on the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA)'s focus in lobbying despite the absence of its head of policy David Marshall. Marshall will be joined by Carol Hale, head operations for ABTA, in leaving the association in March 2009. The positions will be distributed among senior managers and staff such as Andy Cooper. ABTA is reorganising its internal processes with its static review and relocation to be more efficient and to prevent possible redundancies.
