Dear TIES Members,
 
As 2008 comes to a close, on behalf of our TIES team and Boardof Directors, we wish you a healthy and happy holiday season!This past year has been challenging on many fronts, from thewars fought to pressing environmental issues, to the eco-nomic downturn in so many na�ons - we have all felt the im-pact of global situa�ons affec�ng our local communi�es.We believe that ecotourism is one of the mechanisms toassist biodiversity conserva�on, which ul�mately improvesthe health and well-being of all who inhabit the planet. In thecoming year, we remain commied to suppor�ng commu-nity efforts in conserva�on through educa�on and training.We have been encouraged by efforts made throughthe Partnership for the Global Sustainable TourismCriteria (GSTC) and the Sustainable Tourism StewardshipCouncil in 2008, and planned progress for 2009. These ini-�a�ves, as well as those of many others are moving thetravel and tourism industry to a new level of sustainability.At TIES, we con�nue our commitment to these programs, andwe look forward to communica�ng the progress made as wemove into 2009. We also look forward to hearing from youand the great work so many members have accomplishedaround the globe! Thank you for your con�nued support!Warm wishes for a wonderful holiday season and a very happy NewYear 2009!Kelly Bricker, Chair, TIES Board of Directors
