Business Travel Management Education for Every Experience Level

Education is the foundation for the existence of the Global Business Travel Association – Kansas City Chapter. Each of our monthly meetings is designed to provide current, leading edge information and knowledge sharing among our membership, or to create a comfortable social environment where networking and peer recognition can be accomplished informally. 

GBTA KC Chapter supports the pursuit of professional certification through the Global Business Travel Association, their programs, and their educational offerings.
