GBTA Chapters and Affiliates 


 

The 26 GBTA Chapters and 13 GBTA Affiliate organizations across the United States represent GBTA at a local level. They provide educational and scholarship opportunities for business travel professionals to advance their knowledge through regular meetings and networking opportunities. Memberships are available for each GBTA Chapter and Affiliate by visiting their respective websites. GBTA All Access Membership includes an Industry (GBTA) and Community (Chapter) membership.

The Chapter President's Council (CPC) represents the unified Chapters and Affiliates of GBTA and is the principal liaison between Chapters and Affiliates and GBTA. The CPC's membership includes leaders of each of the GBTA's chapters/affiliates, and the President of the council sits on the GBTA Board of Directors. Please visit the Chapter President's Council website for more information on GBTA Chapters and Affiliates.
