NBTA’s Government Relations program brings the collective voice of business travel to Washington.

One of the primary benefits of NBTA membership is an effective Government Relations program. In addition to lobbying on members’ behalf, NBTA gives members opportunities to get involved in issues that affect business travel through the NBTAPAC.

Business travel accounts for a significant portion of the travel industry, one of the most important segments of the American economy, which employs one in every seven workers. Travel plays an integral role in the success of American businesses in every industry. NBTA members contribute heavily to that success, directing more than $170 billion in travel & entertainment expenses each year. Laws and policies that affect NBTA members and their companies’ travelers have a real impact on American businesses and the economy. 


NBTAPAC is NBTA’s political action committee. It enables NBTA’s advocacy team to raise money to support political candidates for federal office who know and understand – and support – the issues of business travelers.

Help us to ensure that congressional seats are held by individuals who understand business travelers’ issues and challenges and can have a positive impact on your livelihood. Get involved!
