The Asian American Hotel Owners Association (AAHOA) today announced that membership has reached 12,500, a new record for the world’s largest hotel owners association.
“The incredible growth of AAHOA is a testament to the value we are providing our members and private sector partners,” AAHOA chairman Pratik Patel said. “We worked tirelessly over the course of this year to raise the bar and ensure that all hoteliers are aware of AAHOA’s ability to help members make money, save money and protect their investment. The best is yet to come for this organization. We expect to reach 13,000 members by the end of this year.”
Membership has grown 12 percent since August 2013. AAHOA members receive a wide array of benefits including national and local advocacy, member services, and a wide range of discounts through buyer/partnering programs, which include: ADP Employer Services, Chase Paymentech Solutions, FedEx, HBO, Proctor & Gamble Professional and more.
The association recently began a targeted outreach to female members in hotel leadership and young hoteliers (under the age of 35). Each category has also grown to record levels over the last year.
AAHOA is the largest hotel owners association in the world, with 12,500 members owning more than 40 percent of all U.S. hotels. AAHOA promotes and protects the interests of its members by inspiring excellence through programs and initiatives in advocacy, industry leadership, professional development, membership benefits, and community involvement.
