CSN LogovestaviaThe CSN Team and supporters of the ADTRAV Community Impact Foundation made it happen again for Christmas.   Proceeds from fundraising and support from the ACIF allowed the CSN Team the opportunity to make Christmas presents a reality for 15 children again this year.   ADTRAV Family Members from Southlake, Huntsville and Vestavia did the heavy lifting and put it all together.  Thanks to all of you who support the CSN Team and the ADTRAV Community Impact Fund.

Even on his day off Ron comes in to save the day! He forgot to get dressed, but at least he is supporting Disney with his Mickey Mouse pjs! We can wear attire from vendors that we work with on Fridays, right?

Please welcome Julie Howell in the Accounting Department!

Please join me in welcoming Robert Reynolds to the ADTRAV family.  Robert will be our new VP Finance, filling the position vacated by Kern with his move to VP Technology.  Robert has a very strong financial and service background and we are excited to have him on the Executive team.  He will oversee our accounting department, Human Resources (including payroll) and work with me on the financial matters of the company.  He is new to the travel industry, so I know he will have a LOT of questions for many of you over the next couple of months.  Please help him during this transition period as you wouldn’t want him to accidently delete your name from the payroll file next week!!!!  Just kidding!!!

Make it a great week and I look forward to seeing everyone in Atlanta for the annual meeting!!!  Start resting now!!
