GBTA Committees 

GBTA's volunteer committees, councils and task forces provide an opportunity for GBTA members to work in areas of special interest. They are advisory in nature and work on special projects which segment the Association's operations. These committees offer GBTA members opportunities to contribute to their growth as business travel professionals. As GBTA, a new interconnection will allow for global guidance and information sharing. 


The globalization of the organization and its committees is an ongoing process. And with our committee structure at the heart of GBTA, bringing global perspective to these committees is key. All committees are beginning the evolution to include representatives of all GBTA regions worldwide. If you’re a member of a GBTA region or you know someone who is and may be interested in a committee, please submit an application below.


One exciting initiative already underway is the creation of a global program for Sustainability, named Project ICARUS, currently involving Sustainability/CSR Committee volunteers in the GBTA Regions of North America, Europe and Australia/New Zealand. Latin America and Asia are expected to join in 2013/14.
Overseeing this structure is a Global Advisory Board comprising representatives from buyers, suppliers, academics and subject matter expert communities. The new organization is led by Bernard Harrop, Head of Sustainability for Project ICARUS.
