Our advocacy specialists have influence with the Oklahoma State Legislature and the state’s many regulatory agencies, working for the good of the industry and keeping you informed of decisions being made that will affect you.
We also encourage members to join with fellow Oklahoma hoteliers as the OH&LA delegation travels to Capitol Hill for the American Hotel & Lodging Association's Legislative Action Summit (LAS). This annual spring event is the most effective way to voice the strength of the lodging industry to key policymakers in Washington during our visits to Capitol Hill. Our issues are too important to leave to others; it is your responsibility as a leader in our industry to attend. Contact Patti Colley, Executive Vice President for more information.
Don't miss the most important summit in the hotel industry! Your voice matters and we need you there.
"OH&LA provides a voice at the capitol on important issues like the billboard advertising, per diem rates, minimum wage and healthcare. Collectively, we make a larger impact where as an independent operator, our voices may not be heard."
Join OKWIL for an interactive panel session at 2:30 on October 5 designed to help attendees embrace the benefits of “engaging” with colleagues, clients, and social circles for the betterment of their career and personal relationships. Attendees will hear from two former hotel executives, now making their careers as directors of event management, who are champions of true engagement.
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.
