Hispanic Motorcoach Council Celebrates Diversity in the Industry

The group travel and motorcoach industry is as diverse an industry as its customers it serves. Because of this diversity and understanding that cookie cutter ideas and education does not fit all everyone’s needs, ABA created the Hispanic Motorcoach Council/El Consejo Hispano de Autobúses (HMC). 

This group of predominantly Spanish-speaking motorcoach operators offers support (through networking), knowledge and information related to security issues, safety risks, legislative oversight and government processes and regulations. The HMC’s goal is to make sure that each of our members are kept well informed of developments within the industry, delivering each and every one of our members the tools that allows them to establish long-term strategies and success as well as implementation of short-term actions. HMC members are dedicated professional individuals, business owners and affiliated personnel who have a common interest in providing the highest quality and safest possible motorcoach service to all passengers and are interested in working with the ever-growing Hispanic business community in the motorcoach industry throughout the United States.

The HMC wants to serve as a resource center and forum to promote safe motorcoach operations, encourage interaction among operators and transportation planners, and advocate for Hispanic and minority owned businesses. 

To learn more about the HMC, make plans to attend the HMC meeting at ABA’s Annual Meeting & Marketplace. At the HMC Winter Meeting, you will hear about the council’s work, opportunities to network with HMC operator and associate members, participate in a sample of educational sessions offered at our regional meetings, and an opportunity to take part in discussions to help the council chart a path for the year ahead. Join us to find out how you can get involved!  

Registration for this meeting includes access to ABA’s Annual Meeting & Marketplace all-delegate events.  Visit http://www.buses.org/marketplace for information on all of the events and up-to-date schedule for ABA’s Annual Meeting & Marketplace.
