Agent Etiquette on FAM trips? Benefits of the GDS? Should I belong to ASTA?

In episode 158 Steph is flying solo! We’ve got some great questions and requests from our audience this week, so have a listen!  


1. Not a question but a request... PLEASE discuss agent etiquette on FAMs. From the unwritten rules of don't sit on the bed or use a toilet to the obvious ones of show up on time, don't solicit guests, etc. There seems to be a lack of awareness and understanding lately. —Becky S.


2. What are the benefits of the GDS? —Anonymous


3. I saw ASTA had a conference this week. I hear about all these travel events and I don’t know which ones I should prioritize. Is ASTA’s event a good fit for new advisors, even if I’m not a member yet? —Anonymous
