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).

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.
