A Message from the Board

Dear NCBTA Members and Guests,

We understand these are unprecedented times with an unpredictable environment and future. As these circumstances result in canceled or postponed events, we are considering alternative options to keep our members engaged and active. Once finalized, we will post on our website and send alerts via email. Also, for those members whose memberships are expiring in March and April, we will be extending the memberships for 6 months. We will continue to monitor all other membership renewal dates and adjust accordingly as the need arises.

We are a resilient and optimistic travel industry community and will manage through these chaotic times as long as we support each other and stay positive. Please reach out via [email protected]  if you have any questions about your membership, the organization or are in need of general support. We also welcome any creative strategies you may have deployed to positively impact the industry or your community.

Stay safe and healthy!
