Volunteer of the Month

The Global Business Travel Association has so many professionals who give back by volunteering their time throughout the year. Every level of our organization is shaped or guided by members who volunteer their time in areas such as committees, chapters, events, task forces, and leadership. Through sharing their expertise and knowledge in their service to GBTA, our volunteers work tirelessly in their efforts to advance the business travel industry. GBTA appreciates their dedication to the organization and the profession, so each month, we highlight one Direct member volunteer and one Allied member volunteer who has gone above and beyond in their service to make a meaningful impact on the business travel industry and GBTA community.
