History

TBTA was founded as a chapter of the Global Business Travel Association in 1994 by a group of local travel professionals. The objective of TBTA is to develop a network where travel professionals can receive support and education to enhance their career responsibilities through active involvement. TBTA is committed to addressing issues that arise in the travel industry and affect corporate travel.

The first official meeting was held in April of 1995. Membership consists of travel managers, as well as suppliers and vendors from airline, car rental, hospitality and other travel-related industries. The goals and directions of the organization are determined by the membership.
