  7. 7. Membership • Individuals are IFITT members but form a local (location based) or special interest (topic based) groups to explore things more relevant to their interest and context Esityksen nimi / Tekijä 24.11.2013 7
  8. 8. Legal status • Some chapters establish their own legal entities and become registered associations but this is not obligatory - it is up to the local chapter board. In any case the IFITT Chapter Agreement regulates the IFITT Chapters. Esityksen nimi / Tekijä 24.11.2013 8
  9. 9. Finance • In general IFITT chapters do not receive any funding or a share of IFITT membership fees. Chapters can raise revenue if they wish to through local events and sponsorship. Sometimes the IFITT Board will be in a position of offer limited financial assistance to cover start-up costs and in the past short term agreements can allow revenue to be shared with chapters if new members join IFITT as a result of a local membership drive.

  11. 11. Key benefits • One of the key IFITT membership benefits is the access to international peers and the opportunity to observe and hear commentary on new research and global best practice in IT in travel and tourism. At the chapter level membership benefits are more about facilitating local engagement between industry, government and academia, particularly in geographic areas that are far from our European base.

  12. 12. Best practice • In Australasia, the key to the modest success of the chapter has been the commitment of 3 or 4 individuals with representation from government, industry and academia. Typically they run business networking sessions (for example breakfasts with a speaker and possibly a sponsor if appropriate)and work with local Tourism conferences for example, advising on program themes and speakers and getting some IFITT recognition in return. To be successful a chapter needs at least 3 leaders prepared to make the chapter work and its help to have a clear idea of the activities that the local chapter will undertake. Be aware that this a commitment will involve on going work and active promotion of the chapter. Esityksen nimi / Tekijä 24.11.2013 12
