Introduction to Membership

Did you know that the Australian Institute of Tourism Officers Ltd. (AITO) provides its members with details of salary levels earned by Tourism Managers across Australia? This enables our members to  compare what they are getting with industry standards. It also provides them with professional  advice when seeking a salary increase.

Did you know that the AITO provides its members with sample position descriptions, performance agreements and employment contracts? This puts them in a position of strength when negotiating employment contracts or undergoing a performance review.

Did you know that the AITO has an agreement with the Northern Melbourne Institute of Technology in offering training courses ranging from Certificate II through to Certificate IV, Diploma and Advanced Diploma in Tourism? Key components of these courses are the ability to recognise and give credit for prior learning and experience in the work place.

Did you know the AITO runs a residential training course each June/July for the benefit of its  members and others in the Tourism Industry? The one run early last year covered Business  Planning, Operational Planning, Goal Setting, Evaluations, The Internet, Funding Submissions, Legal Knowledge for Business Management (This year it was on the Privacy Act) and Stress Management

The AITO is a group of people across Australia who have banded together to form a professional organisation for the benefit of its members.

The organisation of the Institute is handled by members of the executive.

Additional benefits are that the AITO acts in an advisory capacity to various governments and so  can “foster” the recognition of professional Tourism Managers across Australia. Also the members form  a network of colleagues that you can call on for advice and experience.

I would like to invite you to be a member of the Australian Institute of Tourism Officers.
