Administrative history

The United Commercial Travelers Association of America, an international philanthropic and fraternal organization, was established in 1888. Members of the association are drawn from the ranks of business people and professionals who want to improve their communities by assisting youths, the mentally challenged, and senior citizens through the sponsorship of drug awareness, senior citizens, and cancer education programmes; safety poster contests; and other activities.

In 1947 Frank S. Corbin, then president of the Maritime Commercial Travelers Association, encouraged the citizens of Fredericton to organize a branch of the association there. A charter was issued to Fredericton Council #746. In the 1970s Council #746 worked to build and staff a school for mentally challenged individuals at Fredericton. Members of the Fredericton Council have sponsored local baseball and softball teams and have offered university and college entrance scholarships to high school students. In 2001 the United Commercial Travelers of America Fredericton Council #746, now a member of the Atlantic Grand Council, is still committed to the motto "people helping people."
