Payment Solutions Committee

The Payment Solutions Committee’s mission is to provide strategic direction for business travel payment. The committee provides leadership to members and the global business travel community through education, strategic direction and universal standards, as it relates to travel payment.

  • To improve the understanding and professional relationships between corporate travel managers, procurement & financial professionals, business travelers and industry merchants.
  • To engage in projects that will assist GBTA members in developing, implementing, and marketing travel payment solutions.
  • To act as a resource for GBTA members seeking information on business travel payment; publish committee standard documents and research materials covering various payment solutions.
  • To provide strategic direction to streamline communication, acceptance and other process efficiencies.

Applications to serve on a Committee are accepted year-round and open to any GBTA member. Members serve 2-year terms running from Convention to Convention. Each Committee will be in contact shortly after an application is received. Based on the application, the Committee may either conduct an interview, hold the application or decline the applicant. Committees must maintain a 51% Direct Member and 49% Allied Member ratio. Fill out the committee application form below.
