About Us > Welcome

On behalf of the Dallas Fort Worth Business Travel Association’s Board of Directors and members, I would like to welcome you to the DFWBTA web site! For over 30 years, we have been an official and active chapter of the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) which was renamed this year from the previously known National Business Travel Association (NBTA). We are committed to the ongoing development of our members as we strive to enhance their careers in the travel industry through top-rated educational programs and opportunities that allow them to grow professional and personally.

DFWBTA brings travel industry suppliers and buyers together for professional development, successful networking opportunities and the exchange of ideas – all producing powerful results. Our goals for the coming year include continuing to grow our chapter membership and provide great value through quality programs that will be beneficial to all attendees.

I want to personally extend an invitation to you to join us at one of our monthly meetings or social hours to experience first-hand everything that we have to offer both you and your organization. Please feel free to reach out to me or a member of our board with ideas, feedback or questions you may have about the DFWBTA. Your input and support is vital to our chapter’s success as well as the travel industry and our many colleagues in various local businesses.

Thank you for your interest and support. Our best wishes to all of you for a very successful 2011 and we look forward to seeing you at our next meeting or get-together!

Karen Wilson-Torres
DFWBTA President
