GBTA has more than 750 volunteers across 39 groups worldwide that actively contribute to the success of the association and the business travel industry. Our volunteers have continuously lent their time, talent and voice around the world in working to improve our industry.
April 23 – 29 is National Volunteer Appreciation Week and I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge our global volunteers. This week is about celebrating your accomplishments and honoring you, our valued members who give their time. Volunteerism empowers individuals to take their passion and turn it into meaningful change.
As a volunteer myself, I have built long lasting relationships and have witnessed the impact and effects of your contributions. I’m very proud of each of your accomplishments and thank you for the time you invest into your association and the business travel industry.
While this week we take time to acknowledge your service, I look forward to seeing you at GBTA Convention 2017 in Boston where I hope to have the opportunity to thank you in person.
