Chairman's Foreword

Dear TPA Members

When I was called upon by the interim committee to be the interim Chairman of TPA, I was acutely aware that this was no small task and obligation, and that my day-to day responsibilities at my place of work made it seem plainly prohibitive!

What the Interim Committee asked for also seemed unrealistic and ambitious considering the many years of transformation of the Tourism and Hospitality industry in Kenya. However, I took on this challenge to provide stewardship to TPA with the help of the interim committee members to where we have reached now. It is my pleasure on behalf of the TPA Executive Board to make this first address to ALL members noting that finally TPA has taken off the runway. LOGIN TO READ MORE
