Travel the Perfect Freedom
Since the inception of NTA, government relations activities have played a central role in the organization. As the travel and tourism industry has continued to grow and enter every facet of the world economy, government has become increasingly involved at every level.
NTA focuses its government relations efforts on legislation and regulations enacted at the federal, state/provincial and local level. Government relations activities are conducted to ensure that NTA members' voices are heard on all governmental levels.
NTA works as a team to make sure the entire gamut of government relations activities are covered.
Government Relations Committee: The Government Relations Committee determines the annual priority issues and provides general direction for government relations endeavors. The committee is composed of NTA members who have an acute interest and knowledge in public policy.
NTA's Washington, D.C.-area office is known for working cooperatively with NTA members and other travel sector issues, having an excellent relationship with travel and tourism leaders in Congress, and being a leader on national tourism policy development.
