Meg VanekThe historic merging of the New York State Tourism Promotion Agency council (NYSTPA) with the New York State Travel and Vacation Association (NYSTVA) in early 2014 resulted in the creation of NYSTIA, a statewide membership based organization for travel and toursim and related businesses.  NYSTIA is a 501c6, New York State not-for-profit corporation engaged in the business of advocacy, leadership, marketing, and professional development.  With 17 years of tourism experience, Vanek, formerly serving as the Vice Chair of the New York State Tourism Promotion Agency council says, “ The merger of the NYSTPA Council and NYSTVA has created the opportunity for NYSTIA to grow into a larger more engaging state-wide membership organization and I am happy to serve.”
