Registration Open For AH&LA's 2013 Legislative Action Summit
Registration is now open for the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AH&LA) 2013 Legislative Action Summit (LAS), April 23-24, at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill. LAS brings together hundreds of hoteliers from across the country to focus on bottom line issues impacting the lodging industry: meaningful and workable immigration reform; reforming visa laws to increase foreign travel to the U.S.; protecting the industry against unfair labor rulings; health care implementation; and tax reform.
"The power of LAS lies in the ability of constituents, actual voters from congressional districts across the country, to sit down and explain issues directly to their senators and representatives," said Marlene Colucci, AH&LA executive vice president for public policy. "These meetings provide opportunities for hoteliers to explain the impact of legislation and regulations on their businesses and to demonstrate the importance of lodging on the local level. They also create relationships which the industry can utilize in the future."
LAS attendees benefit from insights shared during expert panels, meet with their members of Congress, and hear from key members of Congress and the Administration on policy priorities for 2013. In addition, Hotel Interactive's Glenn Haussmann will host a panel featuring a policy discussion from senior lodging industry executives.
