The GBTA St. Louis Chapter Announces Event Plans for 2021

The board of directors for the GBTA St. Louis chapter is in the process of planning membership meetings and other events for 2021.  The board is looking forward to a year with the “new normal” underway so confidence in travel can be rebuilt.

Recap of January’s Virtual Meeting

GBTA St. Louis’ first virtual meeting in January was a success.  Shane Downey, GBTA Vice President of Government and Community Relations provided excellent information and insights, and the Chapter gives a special thank you for his contribution.  He delivered accurate updates from the new administration, while also sharing knowledge relevant to his considerable experience working in the U.S. capitol.

Upcoming March Meeting

The March meeting will hopefully bring beautiful flowers and the ability to meet in person.  Depending on whether it is safe for GBTA St. Louis’ Chapter members to meet by then, it may be moved to April to ensure the safety of attendees.  The Chapter is currently looking into a winery location that will allow excellent networking as well as delicious food and beverages.  The date is still being finalized, so be sure to check for updates.

The Annual Golf Tournament

The best golf tournament in the Midwest is coming back this year!  This September, the GBTA St. Louis Chapter will be at Glen Echo Country Club.  Home of the 1904 Olympic Golf Games, this historic course has proven to be a superb location for a grand experience.  All aspects of this event intend to unite its Chapter members for the purpose of networking and building relationships around rolling greens, stately trees, and gentle breezes.  Sponsorship opportunities are available, and more information will become available soon!
