We're excited to kick off our 2020 PAC fundraising campaigns and we're working on some exiting ways to help promote GBTA PAC awareness.  If you'd like to donate to PAC, please jump over to our Committe Page for that information.  If you'd like to help support our mission by donating goods or services please do not hesitate to reach out to our committee chairs:

The 2020 Chapter Challenge is ON and there are many changes this year!!
New Rules:

  • Chapters no longer divided into groups based on membership size
  • To qualify each chapter must raise an average of $7.50 per member
  • 30% or more of members must make a donation to Business Travel PAC
  • 40% of Members should send an email to their elected officials
  • Winning chapter based on highest average donation per member


About Government Relations:
One of the primary benefits of TBTA membership is support from an effective Government Relations program. Part of the industry’s collective voice is at the state and local level where TBTA's Government Relations program and its members get involved. GBTA is challenging its chapters to engage their elected officials.

What We Do:
Government Relations advocates policies that benefit the business travel industry. Along with GBTA & Chapter members across the country, we educate members of Congress, their staff, and agency officials about:

  • How business travel stimulates economic and jobs growth
  • Government policies that facilitate business travel
  • Government policies and taxes that discourage or impede business travel
  • Benefits of efficient travel buying and selling
