President's Update As We Close 2020: 

For all of us in the travel industry, the impact of Covid-19 has been felt across multiple dimensions: the economic toll on ourselves and our families, the myriad of stressors on our strategic partnerships and on business travel as whole, the physical and emotional impacts of isolation, and the overall effects of living in a world of uncertainty. In early 2020 we were able to meet face to face for our Q1 meeting but were then forced to postpone our quarterly in-person CNFBTA meetings.  As we look to 2021, we are hopeful about the coming vaccines and our ability to reconnect in an in-person environment. Until that time and when it is safe to do so, we remain committed to providing a space to share and connect within our community. If you would like a way of connecting with your peers, please visit our private Linked In forum by pasting the following in your browser: .  

In the interim, and as the year draws to a close, please note the following:

  •  If you are a member in good standing in 2020, your CNFBTA membership will automatically be renewed for 2021. There will be no cost to you or your organization. We want you as     participating members in 2021 and hope you will join us!
  • If your organization provided a paid sponsorship for 2020, we will automatically extend that sponsorship through the same period in 2021.
  • Open Board of Directors positions for 2021 will be posted soon; keep an eye out for these postings. We welcome new joiners and fresh ideas!
  • GBTA Convention 2021 is currently slated to take place in We will have updates to share after a meeting with GBTA in mid-December.
  • In the spirit of the holidays, CNFBTA will provide 5 members and their families some extra holiday cheer if they choose to participate in our “Helping Hands for the Holidays” give away event.  CNFBTA'S Helping Hands For The Holidays (click here to access) (Participation deadline in December 9th).



Wishing you all a healthy and joy-filled holiday season.
