Dave Hilfman’s Monday Memo to GBTA Members
While this year’s celebrations may look different from those in years past, hopefully everyone will take a moment to reflect on the small bright spots of 2020 and the importance of family and friends. I’m particularly grateful to all of you throughout the business travel industry who have been so kind and supportive of me during my time here at GBTA.
But, before we can fully wind down 2020, there is still some important information to convey.
