The U.S. Travel Association created the U.S. Travel Association Political Action Committee (Travel PAC) in 2009 to enhance its leadership on behalf of the entire travel community by helping to elect Members of Congress who appreciate the power of travel.

The PAC allows U.S. Travel to enlist support from eligible portions of its membership, staff and other travel industry allies to better educate federal policymakers about the economic, social and diplomatic importance of travel. The PAC is a key component of U.S. Travel’s overall mission to promote and facilitate increased travel to and within the United States.

THE OVERARCHING GOALS OF THE TRAVEL PAC ARE:

  • To position the U.S. Travel Association as the leading voice of the travel community
  • To support Members of Congress and candidates who appreciate the vast benefits travel provides for the U.S. economy and American families
  • To educate and mobilize the membership of the U.S. Travel Association to play a more active role in the political process
