                     Activity Report 1995


Executive
Chairman:      Michael Grindrod (UK)

Vice-Chairmen: Mauritizio Davolio (Italy); Kazuomi Sagara (Japan)

Secretary General: Connie Beswick (UK)

Members:   Ole Andresen (Denmark); Andre Guignand (France); Dr.
Martin Fulop (Austria); Ren Daigneault (Canada).

The Executive held a meeting in February 1995 at the Headquarters
of its member organisation Dansk Folke-Ferie in Copenhagen.

Martin Fulop, (Austria), was appointed to the Executive to
replace Dr. Bruno Ziegler, (Austria), who retired last year.

As had been agreed at last year's General Assembly, the Committee
conducted an in-depth review of TICA's structure and activities.
They considered a report submitted by a member outlining details
of a tourism organisation with similar objectives to TICA which
was interested in closer collaboration. It was agreed that the
Chairman and Vice-Chairman (Italy) should meet with this
organisation in order to pursue this possibility. The meeting
took place in March and a full report on developments will be
submitted to the 1995 General Assembly.

will be invited to participate, will be held on Thursday 14
September. The Plenary Session will take place on the morning of
