DWHSA Specialist Course
DWHSA Membership Application (Discounted Membership Referral)
Thanks very much for applying to join the Destination Wedding & Honeymoon Specialists Association (DWHSA)! We're pleased that you were referred to us by one of our current members! Please complete the fields on this form and submit your dues as shown below. Don't forget to tell us which DWHSA member referred you to join us - we'd like to say "Thanks!" to that agent ... Then, we'll confirm your application details and follow up with you within seven to 10 business days. (We need this extra time to confirm application details such as booking ID numbers, web site addresses, and supplier references.) If you have any questions, you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks again!
PLEASE NOTE: Because we review new member applications very thoroughly - e.g., checking ARC/IATA/CLIA/TRUE codes, verifying web site addresses - we do require SEVEN to TEN (7-10) BUSINESS DAYS to process them. We go through this process to prevent travel suppliers, non-travel-selling wedding planners, and others outside the travel industry from joining the association. Please be patient with us as we go through this 7-10 business-day review of your application. (If you'd like to request "rush" handling, we can process your new membership application within one business day for an additional fee of USD$150. Please contact us at email@example.com to request this service.) Thanks very much!
Please share with us the name of the DWHSA member who referred you - thanks!

Which travel industry booking ID number do you have?
Airlines Reporting Corporation (ARC)
International Air Transport Association (IATA/IATAN)
Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA)
Travel Retailer Universal Enumeration (TRUE)
I don't have a travel industry booking number.
If you have an ARC/IATA/IATAN/CLIA/TRUE number, please enter it here (used only for verification purposes):
How many years have you been in the travel business?
How many years have you sold destination weddings and honeymoons?
What types of travel do you sell?
Destination weddings only
Destination weddings and honeymoons only
All types of travel, including destination weddings and honeymoons
Which host agencies, consortia, and/or franchises does your business belong to?
If you do not have a travel industry booking number (ARC/IATAN/CLIA/TRUE) or a web site that's obviously oriented to the sale of destination weddings and honeymoons, please provide the names and phone numbers/email addresses for two (2) suppliers who can verify your activity as a working travel agent.
By completing this DWHSA membership application, you certify that you are engaged as a professional travel agent who is (a) currently selling destination weddings and honeymoons or (b) planning to sell destination weddings and honeymoons along with other types of travel. Also, you certify that your travel business is in compliance with all laws, rules, and regulations and is duly qualified and licensed to do business in each jurisdiction that requires such qualification or licensing. Your membership application is subject to approval by DWHSA management, and your application may be denied with a full dues refund if you cannot demonstrate that you meet DWHSA's membership requirements. DWHSA agent memberships are individual, not business or corporate, memberships. Travel suppliers, destination marketing organizations, and wedding vendors may apply separately for an allied DHWSA membership, but they do not qualify for the primary membership category established for active agents only and may be permanently denied DWHSA membership in any form if they attempt to bypass this rule. Once your application is approved, your DWHSA membership will run for a rolling 12-month period. (For example, if you apply on Feb. 12, and your application is approved Feb. 17, then you will become an official member on Feb. 17, and your membership will continue to run for a full 12 months beginning March 1 and ending Feb. 28/29 the following year.) DWHSA dues are completely nonrefundable, unless your application is denied. DWHSA does not engage in lobbying or political activities, so 100% of your dues may be deductible as a business expense - please check with your tax adviser for complete details. If your application is accepted by DWHSA, you understand and agree that you may be expelled from membership if you reveal any comments, data, or content posted at DWHSA.com, the DWHSA Facebook groups, the DWHSA forum, and all other DWHSA locations. If you'd like to add any comments to your application, please use the field below.
