Established in 2015, our Buyers Council is an informal networking group that discusses industry issues, shares intel and explores ways to improve our products and services. Members are travel managers/travel buyers only. Logged-in members may access the online community here.
The Buyers Council keeps us honest. We designed The Company Dime to be entirely reader-funded and the Council has reminded us and assured us that they prefer this approach over sponsorships or advertising. Many buyers believe the industry needs an independent voice.
The Council advises us on articles to explore, topics to address in our Teleconference and new business initiatives.
A Council member may serve indefinitely, as long as he or she is a travel manager or buyer and a paying subscriber. We hold monthly, optional conference calls. Maximum one hour. Can’t make it? No big deal. Can’t stay the whole time? No worries. Don’t want us to quote you? Not a problem, it’s off the record.
We also ask our Council members to respond to surveys and, in some cases, volunteer as a designated speaker for the monthly calls when specific topics require a deep dive.
In short, the Buyers Council is a partnership that helps ensure what subscribers are getting is worth paying for.
