Get Involved

One of the benefits of AHLA membership is the opportunity to build professional relationships and shape the future of the lodging industry through our committees. By tackling specific challenges and opportunities in ways not feasible for larger groups, AHLA committees provide continuity of thinking for the larger organization and build progress on a cross-section of knowledge and experience.

AHLA committees serve as the venue by which your interests become industry priorities, allowing like-minded AHLA members to share expertise and insight through task- and topic-focused working groups. Deepening your involvement is a great way to simultaneously network with peers, build professional credentials, help steer the future of lodging and give back to the industry.
