Your Input is Needed

Those who manage employees in Ohio's travel economy are dealing with some unique challenges - from finding qualified workers to providing consistent and affordable training, from regulatory compliance to retention. 

In order for the Ohio Travel Association to best represent the interests of those in the travel economy, we need your opinion and stats on the J-1 Visa Summer Work Travel program currently being reviewed by a presidential task force and is in danger of being discontinued.

The J-1 Summer Work Travel program is a US State Department program that allows for foreign students to work in the US during their breaks. More than 3,000 of these workers are employed in Ohio, most in the travel industry. 

Please complete this survey so we can support or oppose change to best help your business. If you are not the individual responsible for human resources at your place of business, please forward this survey to that person and encourage them to complete.

Thank you.
