Government Relations

GBTA’s Government Relations program brings the collective voice of business travel to Washington.  Part of that collective voice is at the state and local level where WBTA's Government Relations program and its members get involved. 


One of the primary benefits of GBTA and WBTA membership is an effective Government Relations program. In addition to lobbying on members’ behalf, GBTA and WBTA gives members opportunities to get involved in issues that affect business travel. 
 
See GBTA's Government Relations program website for detailed information.
 
 

 
What is NBTAPAC?
 
NBTAPAC is GBTA’s political action committee. It enables GBTA’s advocacy team to raise money to support political candidates for federal office who know and understand – and support – the issues of business travelers.
 
Whether or not you are politically “active”, there is no better way to support the candidates and the issues that impact your company’s travel needs. Your contribution, combined with the donations from your GBTA colleagues from across the U.S., will help ensure that GBTA has the power to back those members of Congress who show leadership and commitment to the business travel community’s issues. So let your voice be heard!
 
Donations may be made by WBTA MEMBERS ONLY. By clicking the link below you are certifying that you are a member in good standing in the WBTA.

Join GBTA in Supporting the Trusted Traveler 

Global business travelers require a secure and effective transportation system that respects their time, privacy and rights. However, everyday we see examples of problems with a one size fits all approach. GBTA was pleased to hear Secretary Napolitano discuss these issues and an expansion of the Trusted Traveler Program. While the Trusted Traveler Program won’t completely end the issues travelers face, it can make a difference. 

Please consider sending a note to your Senators and Representatives and tell them to stand up for the traveler and enact common sense aviation security reforms that will maintain security, increase efficiency and reduce the hassles for U.S. travelers. Tell Congress to implement the Trusted Traveler Program.

As travelers ourselves and those responsible for thousands of travelers, we know that travel must be safe but it must also be efficient. Let me be clear, safety is a priority. But it’s time to do away with the one size fits all approach and implement change that allows for travel that is both safe and efficient.
