    About Government Relations:

    One of the primary benefits of TBTA membership is support from an effective Government Relations program. Part of the industry’s collective voice is at the state and local level where TBTA's Government Relations program and its members get involved. GBTA is challenging its chapters to engage their elected officials.

    What We Do:

    Government Relations advocates policies that benefit the business travel industry. Along with GBTA & Chapter members across the country, we educate members of Congress, their staff, and agency officials about:

    • How business travel stimulates economic and jobs growth
    • Pro-Business Travel Government policies
    • Benefits of efficient travel buying and selling
    • Government policies and taxes that discourage or impede business travel
