Chapter Leadership

The Chapter President's Council (CPC) represents the unified local chapters of the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) and is the principal liaison between local chapters and GBTA. The CPC's membership includes:

  • Leaders of each of the GBTA's chapters
  • The President of the council sits on the GBTA Board of Directors

The CPC coordinates efforts between GBTA and our network of chapters, provides education and professional development to chapter leaders and guides GBTA's chapters in their initiatives and programs.

Please thank our sponsors of the Chapter Leadership Summit.
