Join Zephyr Today or Renew Your Membership


The Zephyr reception at the 2017 TRB Annual Meeting

Members are at the heart of the Zephyr Foundation’s organizational structure (see Article I of our Bylaws…we’re not joking). Members are responsible for electing the Board of Directors and play a key role in supporting the organizational core through volunteership and guidance as well as their membership dues.

This structure was selected based on extensive consultation within our community as well as research on similar organizations in other fields and has the following advantages:

  • Allows the foundation to undertake shared “backbone” support roles for the industry rather than relying on project- or program-specific grants which tend to ebb and flow.
  • Priorities are responsive to both grassroots (member) needs as well as strategic (top-down) priorities.
  • Shared ownership of the Foundation by the community creates buy-in.

By joining today, you will help us build a tight-knit community of motivated travel analysis professionals, working together to improving our industry.
