Project Unite Member Update
Project Unite Member Update
As you might recall, last year GBTA purchased certain assets of the Association of Corporate Travel Executives (ACTE) during their bankruptcy process. We then embarked on Project Unite as a way to bring together those ACTE assets into GBTA so that we can offer you the best corporate travel education and programming. After a global survey, numerous hours of global conference calls and individual phone calls, along with many emails that provided very insightful details into the global business travel community, we are ready to transition Project Unite from the fact-gathering stage to the review and execution stages.
There are many takeaways and great ideas from the fact-gathering stage that will ensure that GBTA is incorporating the key components of ACTE to create a lasting, positive impact on our members.
