Business Travel PAC:

Business Travel PAC is the bipartisan GBTA USA political action committee or PAC. As the only federally recognized PAC representing the business travel industry, it gives the industry another voice in the political process.

Through the Business Travel PAC, GBTA & Chapter members educate and financially support members of Congress who understand the value of business travel and support pro-business travel interests.

When government policies can make such a big difference in your lives – and the success of your employer and the business travel industry – participation in the political process is essential.
