During the ALTO networking lunch in Berlin, honorary memberships were presented to two very special friends of ALTO, Peter Iwanovsky and Susan Goldstein. Both Peter and Susan were given rapturous rounds of applause as they received their awards and gave heartfelt speeches reconfirming the core values of ALTO.
Peter holds a special place in heart of ALTO serving on the board at the inception of the association. As Chairman, it was Peter who initially drove ALTO and without the extraordinary years of hard work that Peter gave to the association, ALTO would never have existed.
All our members will all know Susan. As the consummate networker, Susan has been the ultimate industry matchmaker and the welcoming face at ALTO event over the years. Importantly, it was thanks to Susan’s efforts in helping restructure the association that we are in the position we are today.
These were the first honorary memberships ever awarded by ALTO. However, the presentation of the awards is set to become a feature of the annual ALTO event in Berlin. Honorary memberships will be awarded to exceptional individuals who have provided an outstanding contribution to the language travel industry and/or the association.
