Latest News from the GBTA Nebraska Iowa Chapter Print

President's Report

Hello fellow travel professionals,

In this enormously challenging time, we've had to regroup, refocus and be creative to continue to bring value to the members of our chapter.   Rest assured; we are still focused on our core values:

  • Promoting members’ growth through education, community service, and involvement
  • Providing a forum for the constructive exchange of information and ideas
  • Enhancing the professional development of all members and strengthening their value to their company
  • Representing a diverse group of travel executives committed to advancing the local, regional, and global interests of the corporate travel industry


The road ahead is unknown.  Thinking about future chapter meetings, the safety and well-being of our members is paramount.  With this in mind, your chapter leadership has decided to continue with virtual meetings through the end of 2020.   We are hopeful to resume our live meetings in January 2021.  In the meantime, we look forward to connecting through our virtual meeting in September and through 2020.  We'll continue to weather this storm together!

Yours truly,


Joni Doiron, GBTA Nebraska Iowa Chapter President
