Welcome to the
Ohio Valley Chapter of GBTA!

The Mission of the OVBTA Board in 2017 continues to be “Growth Through Strong Educational Programs.” 

The OVBTA Board is committed to enhancing the travel profession by sponsoring educational and informational programs for our members, and by providing top-rated speakers to address travel-related issues, concerns and current "hot topic" items.  Our events are an excellent venue for the sharing of travel-related information and professional expertise where we are focused on perfecting the science of business travel management.  We provide a great way to network and learn from each other. 

I am pleased to announce that because of the hard work of the OVBTA Board and our Mission to provide strong educational programs OVBTA has exceeded 200 members.  At the June meeting, Membership Chair Bobbi Huber, announced a 20% increase in Membership!  To date we have 208 members.  So if you haven't been to a meeting lately come join us.  Our August meeting is all about Technology and has a great line up of top industry speakers.
