Governance Structure

Board of Directors

The AHLA Board of Directors is comprised of C-level lodging executives representing the full scope of the lodging sector, including brands, ownership companies, REITs, management companies, franchised and independent properties, state lodging associations, and industry partners. The AHLA board meets twice yearly to discuss a broad range of industry- and association-related issues.

Executive Committee

This all-star team of leaders represents all corners of the industry. A standing committee established by the board, they are charged with conducting any necessary business of the association between board meetings.


Our governing bodies are led by a small team of elected and appointed leaders. The officers are listed at the top of the board of directors page.


AHLA committees offer leadership opportunities, idea exchange, and relationship building across the membership. They provide valuable context and feedback, and are organized by subject matter, geography, and profession to help us better understand the complexities of the industry.
