The Western Association of Travel Agencies (WESTA) announced its new board members for 2011-2012 at last month’s 19th annual Preferred Supplier Appreciation Dinner in Portland. The organization elected two new members to the board: director Paula Hobble of Focus on Travel in Beaverton, Ore., and director Susan Parr of Susan Parr Travel in Port Angeles, Wash.

WESTA also reelected three members to second terms: director Les Burger of Ladera Travel in Menlo Park, Calif., treasurer Gerrie Flores of East Lake Travel in Yorba Linda, Calif., and director Vicki Hughes of Travel Concepts in Danville, Calif.

These five agencies owners will join the seated members of WESTA's board in the management of the group.
