Tip of the Week: How to Complete the Annual Agency Affirmation Update

The purpose of the annual Agency Affirmation submission is to electronically confirm your continued participation and compliance with the Agent Reporting Agreement.

The submission date is based on when the agency became active with ARC (the anniversary date). ARC will email the agency's MyARC Primary Administrator 105 days prior to their anniversary date. This email will request the affirmation of key agency details, such as business address, ownership and operational contacts. Upon receipt of the email, the Primary Administrator can forward the request to anyone within the agency as long as that individual has Accreditation Tool access. This new annual affirmation will enable ARC to confirm that the agency information we have on file is up to date.

Completing Agency Affirmation is simple. If all of the agency information is accurate, simply select "yes" under each section. If changes are required, please explain which items have changed. We understand how important our customers' time is and have made every effort to make this process as quick, easy and seamless as possible.

It is very important that the agency information is reviewed and either confirmed or corrected on an annual basis. Maintaining accurate information is critical, as it allows us to better serve our travel professional community.
