The Indiana Chapter had an outstanding meeting on Saturday, Sept. 30, 2017. The activities began with an enjoyable reception and lunch, during which time the members exchanged travel stories and anecdotes. After a fine lunch, we heard an outstanding presentation by Sally Brown Bassett, Ph.D. She is the former president/CEO of the Ambassadair
Travel Club, world traveler, sacred activist and yoga instructor. Sally has traveled to over 140 countries and has held numerous positions from flight attendant to CEO. She went from the galley to the boardroom in 30 years in the travel industry.
Her travel eventually evolved to a mixture of volunteering and tourism, a concept known as voluntourism, which she helped coin. She completed her doctorate degree at Purdue University in tourism with emphasis on international humanitarian work.
