American Hotel & Lodging Association - Student Chapter
The American Hotel & Lodging Association (AH&LA) is the only national organization dedicated to serving the interests of hoteliers on the front line, behind the scenes, and on Capitol Hill. AH&LA is composed of bright students interested in furthering their experience and education in the field of hospitality. Student members are part of a network of industry executives and are invited to attend AH&LA conferences and events, where they can meet potential employers. Students who join are equipped with the latest hospitality news and educational resources, allowing them to stay on top of the trends and best practices of the industry.
The goal of AH&LA is to motivate and initiate a round-table opportunity for students to converse and to obtain hands-on experience in the hospitality industry through industry site visits, networking with industry leaders, and peer interaction.
