In 1994 some journalists from Toronto thought that the media and the tourism industry should form a professional relationship and the Travel Media Association of Canada (TMAC) was formed. Since then the ranks swelled to over 450 members with a breakdown of 4-% media and 60% industry partners.
Guided by a volunteer Board of Directors TMAC includes travel writers, authors, broadcasters, photographers and producers working in just about every form of mass media from newspapers to television and from CD-Rom to internet streaming.
From February 3-9, 2009 the Annual General Meeting and Conference of TMAC will be held at the River Rock Casino in Richmond, B.C. Click on to the site for infomrmation updates.
