  2. Setahu saya singkatan HPI telah digunakan secara resmi sebagai abbreviasi dari Himpunan Penerjemah Indonesia–bukan Himpunan Pramuwisata Indonesia. Terus terang, saya tidak tahu yang mana dari kedua institusi ini yang secara hukum berhak menyandang nama HPI. Mohon klarifikasinya.

    • Salam kenal sdr. Canggih Reza,
      Terima kasih atas komentar anda. Mengenai singkatan HPI, terus terang kami baru mengetahui bahwa singkatan yang sama juga digunakan oleh Himpunan Penerjemah Indonesia. Namun demikian informasi anda akan dijadikan masukan yang akan dibicarakan dalam pertemuan pengurus HPI. Sekarang ini nama HPI – Himpunan Pramuwisata Indonesia telah disandang oleh Dewan Pimpinan Pusat HPI, 23 Dewan Pimpinan Daerah HPI, dan sekitar 70 Dewan Pimpinan Cabang, dengan jumlah anggota sekitar 12.000 orang yang tersebar di seluruh Indonesia.

Memiliki Lisensi artinya sudah mengikuti dan lulus program pendidikan dan latihan pramuwisata yang diadakan setiap tahun oleh Dinas Kebudayaan dan Pariwisata DKI Jakarta.
