Letter from our President…

 On behalf of the North Carolina Business Travel Association (NCBTA), welcome!  

 It’s an exciting time to be a member of NCBTA.  2013 will prove to be another typical year in the industry:  CRAZY!   Nothing earth shattering in the forecast:  cost increases, demand increases, minimal changes to capacity, open booking, chip/pin technology, everybody is mobile and everybody has an opinion.  Technology advancement and global economic conditions continue to force us to pay attention.   Travel Buyers need savings and Travel Suppliers need revenue; both need good partnerships with a strong ROI.  Travelers want to do what they have to do with ease and as quickly & comfortably as possible.  Travel Managers are sprouting 13 new arms...  

From the Fiscal Cliff to Fees, NCBTA is here to help decipher.  From Sales to Administration, come build your network with us.   

Your NCBTA Board and Committee members are committed to bringing you the latest industry information and the best networking opportunities. 

Our number one priority in 2013 and beyond is to elevate the value of being a member of NCBTA, via:

  • High-impact & relevant education content
  • Unique networking & learning opportunities
  • Developing our Website as a leading resource for NC Buyers and Suppliers

I invite you to PARTICIPATE, BUILD YOUR NETWORK, SHARE YOUR SUCCESS & LEARN MORE. I encourage you to check back often for updates & attend as many events as you can

 If you are visiting our website to register for an event, renew your membership, become a member, become a sponsor, or just to snoop around…I sincerely THANK YOU and welcome your feedback.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to me at wpalmer@travelleaders.com or on my mobile at 704-779-7159.  It’s an AWESOME time to get more involved with NCBTA!  I look forward to seeing you soon.
