Join Austin Hotel Lodging Association

As you plan your 2016 budgets, we ask you include the Austin Hotel & Lodging Association as an essential line item for professional development. Benefits to membership include educational programming, legislative presence with city and state officials and scholarships for our colleagues in the Austin hotel and lodging industry. Together we can achieve what would be impossible individually.

In the fast-paced business climate in which most hoteliers operate these days – where emails flood our in-boxes and meetings overstuff our schedules – the last thing most hotel management professional want to think about is voluntarily taking on any more “optional” responsibilities.  But, somehow, the top professionals in the lodging industry manage to carve out time to participate in the many professional societies and/or trade association available to virtually every discipline within our industry.  Why are these top performers willing to invest time and energy in participating?  Why are their companies willing to make the investment in association fees and costs to attend conferences, meetings and events?
