NYCBTA January 2020 Kick-off Meeting: Scope of the Travel Manager

Please join us as we kick off 2020 with a dynamic discussion about the role of a Travel Manager and how we all form a piece of this complex puzzle.

About the session:
A travel manager’s world is broad in scope, technically complex, always hectic.  Some have teams; some are only one.  In a well-managed end-to-end comprehensive travel program, suppliers are a piece of the integrated puzzle.  But what other pieces need to be in place for a supplier to be successful? 

When:          Thursday, January 16, 2020
Where:         Scholastic, Inc. - Clifford's Room (11th Floor)
          8:30 AM -   9:00 AM        Registration

About the Speaker:
Cindy Shumate, session presenter, former GBTA Board member, and an experienced travel manager, will share insights from her 19-year career as she built and managed four significant travel programs – different products, different travel environments – but essentially similar programs in structure and function.
