Chapter Challenge

Each year, GBTA challenges its 40 Chapters to achieve a series of tasks designed to introduce you and the industry to federal and state lawmakers. The Chapter Challenge runs from Convention to Convention each year.  Will you help your Chapter be recognized as a national leader?  Chapters meeting the following Chapter Challenge Tasks will be recognized as Chapter Challenge Partners:

  • 50% of membership sends a communication to one of their elected officials through the Legislative Action Center
  • Invite an elected official to speak at a chapter meeting or host an Government relations focused meeting
  • Chapter sends a letter to their Representative or Senator endorsing an endorsed bill or vote
  • Request a meeting with an elected official in your state (NEW!)
  • Chapter appoints a liaison to the GBTA Government Relations Department
  • Raise $1,000 in PAC contributions regardless of Chapter size, must have 30% of members contribute


Chapter Challenge WINNERS Chapters are divided into three groups based on membership. The Chapter in each division that raises the most money above the $1,000 level will be the winner.
