“We provide education, advocacy, and philanthropy to the hospitality industry!”
Actions by government have an impact on your business. That’s why the mission of the Hawai‘i Lodging & Tourism Association is to “provide education, advocacy, and philanthropy to the hospitality industry,” with an emphasis on serving as an effective advocate for our members with the federal, state, and county governments and providing educational opportunities, timely information, and appropriate resources to legislators, public officials, the news media, and community.
Member involvement is vital to the continued success of the visitor industry. Your active participation in the legislative process influences and shapes public policy.
We achieve our goals by speaking as a united voice, working with government and community leaders on common goals, and through the HotelPAC, our non-profit, bi-partisan political action committee that helps elect qualified individuals who recognize the importance of the hotel industry.
For more information on how you can get involved email Jared Higashi, Director of Government & Community Affairs, at firstname.lastname@example.org
