AAHOA Celebrates Surpassing the 10,000-Member Mark
AAHOA is pleased to announce it has surpassed its goal of reaching 10,000 members. This incredible milestone was achieved at the AAHOA Mid East Regional Conference on Wednesday, November 4, 2009 in Cherry Hill, N.J.
“While reaching this incredible milestone, we recognize the number of challenges that all of our members regularly face in this economy,” said Fred Schwartz, President of AAHOA. “We will intensify our efforts, especially during these tough times, to deliver increased resources to our membership regarding advocacy initiatives, cost savings on products and services, and educational programs.”
AAHOA’s rapidly growing membership is a direct result of an increased awareness throughout the hospitality industry of the wide variety of benefits, services and growth opportunities that an AAHOA membership provides. While reaching 10,000 members was one of AAHOA’s goals heading into 2009, AAHOA’s biggest strength continues to be its core values of unity and community. With a steadfast focus on driving membership at events such as Regional Conferences and Town Hall Meetings throughout the country, AAHOA has continued to cement its place as one of the fastest-growing organizations in the hospitality industry and the voice of hotel owners.
