In recent weeks, AAHOA’s leadership team have met face to face with a host of elected officials across multiple levels of state and federal government. AAHOA Chairman Neal Patel and AAHOA Director at Large Eastern Division Pinal Patel represented America’s hoteliers at separate events featuring a dozen Democratic and Republican governors. AAHOA seeks to develop strong relationships with elected officials to advance both our working partnership and issue awareness. As a bipartisan association, AAHOA takes immense pride in the ability to strengthen ties with elected officials on both sides of the aisle.
AAHOA has cultivated relationships with elected officials in Washington, D.C., and in your state capital. In doing so, we have helped expand their knowledge about the importance of hotels to their communities and the economy at large. Thanks to you and your fellow AAHOA Members, AAHOA continues to be the foremost resource and advocate for America’s hotel owners. Engaging directly with your elected officials is one of the best ways to promote laws and policies that benefit our employees, our businesses, and our communities.
