Special Tribute to Industry Legend Roger Dow

| Aug 01, 2022


Yesterday, the U.S. Travel Association said goodbye to Roger Dow, who stepped down from his role as president and CEO after 17 years.

Travel is an integral part of the American experience, and the pro-growth and pro-traveler work Roger has achieved during his time at the U.S. Travel Association helped many AAHOA Members take their hotel business to the next level. 

Roger’s leadership, complemented by an abiding sense of optimism, was essential in guiding the industry through numerous challenges over the years, from the post-9/11 travel slump to the COVID-19 pandemic. Roger was a steady voice of resilience in each of these moments, none more so than by rallying the industry to ensure all sectors of travel received the necessary relief to survive the pandemic and keep workers on payrolls. His role in reopening international inbound air travel and repealing the pre-departure COVID testing requirement was a turning point in the industry’s recovery.

The AAHOA Community wishes Roger all the best in his next chapter and thanks him for all he has done for our industry!
