TTMA President

March, 2022

Dear TTMA Members, Supporters and Friends,


I am honored to serve as the newly elected TTMA President. I would like to thank our past Presidents for their leadership and guidance, as well as all of our members, partners, guest speakers and our award recipients through the years. Without you, TTMA wouldn’t be the driving, thriving force it is in Southern California tourism.


The past few years have been devasting to the world and to our industry. It was a time filled with loss, be it the jobs that we loved or, worse, family and friends. We faced unprecedented health, economic and social challenges and needed to find ways to overcome barriers that didn’t previously exist. We continue to adapt to the new normal of our shared post pandemic and socially enlightened world.


As such, we are embarking on a new era of TTMA as our industry recovers.


It is the goal of myself, our Executive Director and the Board of Directors to provide you with current, honest, interactive and informative monthly programming. TTMA is here to help you connect and re-connect with your fellow members, the Board, and the city at large. Our incredible network sets TTMA apart from many other tourism organizations and we are committed to rebuilding it, to growing and to expanding it in the years to come.


It is my privilege to work alongside our incredible Board of Directors and our Executive Director. Thank you again to all of our members, colleagues and friends for your continued support of TTMA.


Carlos Eduardo Montenegro

2022 President, TTMA - Travel & Tourism Marketing Association, Inc.
