THE Aus­tralian Fed­er­a­tion of Travel Agents has ap­pointed Gra­ham McDon­ald as the new chair­man of the ATAS Code Com­pli­ance Mon­i­tor­ing Com­mit­tee (ACCMC).

McDon­ald, who is on a two-year term com­menc­ing 01 Nov, joins the com­mit­tee with decades of ex­pe­ri­ence “at the high­est level of the law” across a range of in­dus­tries, ac­cord­ing to AFTA ceo Jayson West­bury.

“Mr McDon­ald cur­rently serves as the chair­man of the Fi­nan­cial Plan­ning As­so­ci­a­tion Con­duct Re­view Com­mis­sion, so also brings ex­pe­ri­ence in­ter­act­ing with as­so­ci­a­tions and com­pli­ance,” West­bury said.

The ACCMC hears com­plaints against ATAS ac­cred­ited travel agents, and also mon­i­tors com­pli­ance with the ATAS Code of Con­duct and Char­ter.

West­bury hailed out­go­ing chair­man Steven Heller, who has served on the ACCMC over the last two years, for his “sup­port and ded­i­ca­tion to the ATAS scheme over this time”.
