Senior Director, Industry Relations and Political Engagement
U.S. Travel Association

Michael Jacobson is the senior director of grassroots and political action committee for the U.S. Travel Association. He manages the Power of Travel Coalition, the travel industry’s grassroots network of 500,000 travel employees who advocate to protect and promote travel to and within the United States.

In this role, he spearheaded the Vote Travel campaign in 2012, which included dozens of in-district, campaign-style events as part of a nationwide bus tour. Michael also led the strategic grassroots advocacy efforts that supported the successful reauthorization of Brand USA in 2014.

Additionally, he oversees U.S. Travel’s Political Action Committee, which has quickly grown to become one of the largest travel industry PACs. Michael has more than seven years of experience in grassroots advocacy and nonprofit fundraising.

He is also active in his community, working with organizations such as the American Cancer Society. He holds a degree from Seton Hall University where he graduated Magna Cum Laude. A native of Chicago, Jacobson enjoys cheering on his hometown sports teams.
