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 20+ 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 more than 20 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.
