Appointed Executive Director
At Association of Lodging Professionals (ALP) in Merrill - WI, USA
Kris began her work as the PAII Executive Director in March 2015. In her 20 years of experience as the Administrator of the Wisconsin Bed & Breakfast Association (WBBA), Kris developed skills and attributes to manage an association during both lean and robust economic times, and periods of growth and maturity. Just as innkeepers strive to exceed guest expectations, it’s been her priority to deliver outstanding service to the association and personal attention to the members. PAII, with a membership of innkeepers, aspiring innkeepers, interim innkeepers, industry consultants and vendor partners, presents an annual conference and trade show, with the next event in ORLANDO in January 2018. Members look to PAII as the indispensable source of information year 'round on innkeeping trends, products, and services, which are conveniently delivered by e-publications and webinars. Working independently or with members, volunteers, committees, and a Board of Directors are association management essentials that Kris brings to PAII. Her membership in ASAE (American Society of Association Executives) and the Wisconsin affiliate provided education on association management best practices. Kris’ record of developing and delivering opportunities and programs of value to innkeepers, vendors, and aspiring innkeepers is balanced with fiscal responsibility.
PAII (the Professional Association of Innkeepers International) and AIHP (the Association of Hospitality Professionals) have merged to form one strong united organization, the Association of Lodging Professionals (ALP), Inc.more information
