IRTA�s Euro Chapter Marks 10th Year
The IRTA European Chapter will be celebrating its 10th year
anniversary this September at IRTA�s 29th Annual International
Convention at the Westgate River Ranch Resort outside Orlando,
Florida, from September 22 to 25, 2008.
IRTA Hall of Fame member Paul Suplizio founded IRTA�s European
Chapter when he recognized the growth of barter and trade in the
European market. Since the European Chapter�s inception, member
barter exchanges have included representatives from Belgium,
England, Scotland, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland,
Slovakia, and Turkey.
�The European Chapter continues to grow and plays an important role
in IRTA,� confirmed Executive Director Ron Whitney. �We just had a
terrific Euro Conference in Poland where we created a whole new
slate of exciting initiatives, and voted in a new group of Euro
officers.� The new European officer�s slate is Richard Logie
(president), Rob Van Hilten (vice president), Dariusz Brzozowiec
(treasurer), and Reiner Husemann (secretary).
