The Brownell community is a dynamic group of innovative entrepreneurs with a passion for travel. You will be surrounded by bright, motivated professionals with deep industry experience who freely collaborate and share information.

Our independent advisors extend coast to coast (and even into Europe), but they work together and share information. In fact, all of our independent advisors rank the collaboration and camaraderie of our community as the best thing about Brownell. So forget feeling like you’re a one man (or one woman) show. When you’re a part of the Brownell community, you’ve got plenty of resources and people to turn to every day.

Independent Contractor Advisory Board

One of Brownell’s core values is Innovation, and our travel advisor community is central to moving us forward. Each year, our Independent Advisors nominate and elect an Advisory Board to help guide the direction and development of Brownell Hosting. When advisors join Brownell’s Hosting Program, they are often surprised to learn that we have an Independent Contractor Advisory Board. But to us, it makes perfect sense. Of course the members of our Hosting Program should be actively involved in important decisions and improvements. It’s how we stay ahead of the curve and keep a healthy, happy network of successful independent advisors.

Brownell Academy

Brownell Academy

It’s been called “The Greatest Show on Earth,” and with good reason! Brownell Academy is our annual meeting with a focus on sharing, learning, growing and FUN.

Our family of Independent Advisors, supplier partners and staff consider it a “can’t miss” event because of the valuable networking and enriching content. Each Brownell Academy is carefully planned over nine months by a team of seven to develop content and opportunities for professional growth.
