Education is the foundation of the GBTA - Utah Chapter.  We were founded in 2000 by a small group of local travel industry leaders committed to raising the knowledge and professionalism of travel industry professionals. The monthly meetings are designed to provide current, leading-edge information and knowledge sharing among our members in a comfortable, social environment where networking and peer recognition can be accomplished informally.

The Utah Chapter of GBTA supports the pursuit of professional certification through the Global Business Travel Association, their programs, and their educational offerings. Through our association with GBTA, we are able to offer educational scholarships for a variety of programs. Please access the information below for additional details.
