History

CFBTA was founded as a chapter of the National Business Travel Association in 1989 by a group of local travel professionals. In 2005 a branch of CFBTA was established in Jacksonville under the name of First Coast Business Travel Association.  In 2010 the branch was dissolved. and the chapter expanded the geographic scope of CFBTA to cover Central and North Florida and in 2011 the chapter name was changed to Central & North Florida Business Travel Association.  The objective of the organization is to develop a network where travel professionals can receive support and education to enhance their career responsibilities through active involvement.  CNFBTA is committed to addressing issues that arise in the travel industry and affect corporate travel.
