Education is the foundation for the existence of the Central & North Florida Business Travel Association. The association was founded in 1989 by a group of travel industry leaders that wanted to raise the knowledge and professionalism of those individuals whose careers were in managing or selling travel related services. Each of our monthly meetings is designed to provide current, leading edge information to our membership, and to create a comfortable social environment where networking and peer recognition can be accomplished informally. 

As a chapter of the Global Business Travel Association, CNFBTA supports and recognizes the professional education programs they offer. Currently, training is focused in the following areas:

Global Leadership Professional Program (GLP) 


The Global Leadership Professional Program (GLP) is a master's level education program developed by the GBTA Foundation in conjunction with The Wharton School.  It is the only master's level acccredited course offered within the business travel industry and is designed to build upon GBTA's Certified Corporate Travel Executive Program (CCTE)


Scholarship Opportunities

CNFBTA supports the pursuit of professional certification through the Global Business Travel Association's programs and educational offerings.  Due to our affiliation with GBTA, the GBTA Foundation and the CPC (Chapter President's Council) we are able to promote educational scholarship for a variety of programs in addition to our CNFBTA scholarships
