ARC’s board of directors voted to approve revisions made to the ARC Agent Reporting Agreement (ARA). The ARA is the three-party contract between a travel agency, ARC and ARC participating carriers, defining the requirements to receive and maintain ARC accreditation. The board endorsed the revised ARA, which will go into effect in July of next year, during its semi-annual meeting in Chicago. This effective date will allow all parties sufficient time to upgrade systems and business processes to properly support the changes found in the revised ARA.

“ARC sought to meet the needs of today’s travel agency,” said JAB-ARA representative Barry Richcreek, co-owner of Richcreek Vacation Center. “And as ARC serves such a diverse agency customer base, that cannot be easy. With the revised ARA as an example of ARC’s commitment to its customers, I look to them for more good things to come.” www.arccorp.com/news/ara
