Achieving and maintaining balance in our professional and personal lives is more crucial than ever before, as the role of almost every travel professional continues to evolve and as technology continues to drive business traveler preferences and behavior. 

Please plan on attending the OVBTA chapter meetings in 2018 where you’ll be provided with insight to understanding and leveraging the competing interests in your life and how it relates to travel managers, business travelers, industry suppliers and your organization. Come join us and find BALANCE!
