Objections

Atta is a non-profit making Association, we are not a regulatory authority and we do not audit applicants. We rely totally on our membership to propose, support or reject aspiring members. In essence you the members police your own association and as such our membership procedure allows all objections to be fully aired between all parties. This avoids historic relationship or competitive issues that can influence the application process. Within this process we require total transparency and members should be aware that only identifiable member objections will be taken into account.

Procedure

Objections must be raised to the membership secretary info@atta.travel, stating distinctly the grounds for objection, within 10 days of notification of a new member application. The applicant and his two supporters will then be given the full details of the objection and have 10 days to respond or mutually settle the concern, so that the objection is withdrawn. If after this process has taken place the objection still stands, then all correspondence will be presented before the Board of directors for deliberation. The Board have the final decision on the application, there is no appeal process.
