WBTA Members Talk About Value of Membership

Pat Tracey - Appleton Airport
Bob Gotthart - Kohler Company 



The Wisconsin Business Travel Association (WBTA), an official Chapter of the Global Business Association, was founded in 1990. WBTA provides an important forum for the exchange of information, education and ideas among its members, who include representatives from local corporations and leading travel industry suppliers. Our emphasis is on working together to better understanding new and emerging travel management practices.

Both WBTA and GBTA, the national organization provides members with information on the latest technical and service advantages within the industry, as well as current legislative issues involving travel costs and safety matters affecting business travel.

WBTA is committed to enhancing the travel profession by sponsoring educational and informational programs for its members, and by providing top-rated speakers to address travel-related issues, concerns and current "hot topic" items. 

Our chapter is an excellent venue for the sharing of travel-related information and professional expertise, and is an organization focused on perfecting the science of business travel management.
