This membership option is for Individuals or Couples who operate their travel business as independent contractors. You may select this category of membership if you work through a host agency as an outside agent or independent contractor or if you work with multiple agencies and also if you work directly with suppliers. However, if you are interested in securing a TRUE Code booking code to work directly with suppliers, then you should select the "Agency Membership" category.

Read what others are saying:

My most important benefit with OSSN is the education that I receive. From the website with all of the office forms, fams, and legal advice, to the trade shows, to the local monthly meetings where I get to form a personal relationship with vendors and network with other home-based agents and agencies, I become more educated every day in some way that helps to bring more profits into my business.

-Patricia Bannister - Bannister Travel


I must say that since I have become an OSSN member about a month ago, I find that this organization does more for a travel professional than any other organization I have either been involved in or researched.

At first I was hesitant to join because of the cost, but I find this to be most impressive and I thank you sincerely for your help and information.

I know that if I make the choice to go out completely on my own, there is an organization to back me and help me get off to a great start.

Thank you and keep up the good work.....
