The Oklahoma Hospitality Foundation is dedicated to the support and education of Oklahoma's hospitality students. Our Student Programs were formed to develop awareness of the careers available within the hospitality and tourism industry. The Hospitality and Tourism Management Program's (HTMP) industry-driven curriculum is building the best and brightest talent, elevating the industry, and OHF scholarships put students on the path to achieve their dreams.
"The Oklahoma Hotel & Lodging Association works collectively with higher education, technology centers and high schools and keeps us connected to our future leaders through programs designed to help students at all levels to make an informed decision about their career choices."
The Oklahoma Hotel & Lodging Association's annual Lodging Summit, Vendor Expo, and Stars of the Industry Awards luncheon is our most exciting event of the year, in which lodging operators and their team members have the opportunity to network with colleagues, and others important to the success of your operation. Historically, a high ranking representative from the American Hotel & Lodging Association provides a special address.
Members of the OH&LA will come together for Hospitality Day at the Capitol, where we will spend time speaking to legislators about issues facing our industry, and then culminate in a fabulous reception with more than 600 members and legislators at the Chevy Bricktown Events Center.
OH&LA will offer Certification in Hotel Administration (CHA®). The CHA is the most prestigious certification available to hotel general managers and hospitality executives. It identifies the recipient as being part of an elite group of hospitality professionals who, by combining education and experience with dedication to the industry, have achieved a high level of expertise.
