2012 has been a great year for ALTO, our membership has grown by almost 30%, and even in the last few months of the year we welcomed new members on board. We find that new members typically find out about ALTO at industry workshops, through the ALTO Pulse, which is the industry wide online survey circulated by ICEF, or most importantly through other ALTO members. This is why we would like to thank you for being the "evangelists" and encourage you to use the ALTO website in the future to Refer a friend. This function will enable you to follow your recommendations and see when they join ALTO.
Please welcome our new members and connect with their leaders through the ALTO members' area:
Guard.me International Insurance, Canada
Homestay Technologies Ltd., Ireland
IGEC, Saudi Arabia
The London School of English, UK
Here's some thoughts why our new members decided to join the association:
"As the only Spanish Association specialized in foreign language programs, participating in ALTO is the best way to share different projects and be updated in the international linguistic market."
Marta Galea, General Counsel- Aseproce, Spain
"ALTO membership provides a unique opportunity for me to network with individuals involved in the global language travel industry and to keep abreast of the needs and concerns of this growing sector. As a worldwide supplier of Insurance to the International student marketplace, ALTO offers great value and chances to share and contribute new ideas that can shape this industry.”
Keith Segal, President and Global CEO- Guard.me International Insurance, Canada
"We are delighted to become members of ALTO as we bring to market Homestaymanager.com, an industry solution that brings efficiency, transparency & safety for all in the Educational Travel Sector. ALTO membership presents us with an invaluable opportunity to network and forge partnerships with like minded individuals. ALTO will enable us to learn through our peers as we grow internationally and professionalise a core business process for industry players."
