Franchise Relations

Brand Meetings

Many times each year, AAHOA leadership meets with the executive teams of each of the major brands to discuss AAHOA and brand updates and to address any issues of concern to AAHOA Members. AAHOA also hosts Brand Alliance Meetings at brand conferences throughout the year, giving hotel owners the opportunity to hear from AAHOA Officers and the brand's executive leadership about the partnership between the two and what AAHOA is doing for its members.

The Franchise Department also hosts education sessions and webinars, providing up-to-date franchise information to AAHOA Members. In addition, the Franchise Department sends email blasts to AAHOA Members with real-time franchise news and information on court cases that affect them.

Points of Fair Franchising

In 1998, AAHOA identified a set of standards called the Points of Fair Franchising by which to judge the actions of franchise companies. AAHOA has continuously updated the Points in an effort to educate our members about important provisions in their franchise agreements and to insure that franchisors act in a fair and reasonable manner when dealing with their franchisees.
