The Association of Lodging Professionals (ALP) is a non-profit 501(c) 6 membership-based trade association governed by a Board of Directors. A key component of our mission statement is Advocacy. We build relationships with key industry leaders to lobby for legislation that fairly deals with the needs of small lodging properties. We also seek up to date information to offer our members that will help them navigate the many issues they face in the operations of their business.
The word ADVOCACY often brings to mind writing letters or contacting a legislator in support or opposition of a proposed law. While that is true, at ALP, ADVOCACY simply means this: your concerns are our concerns! We focus on YOUR issues and your challenges as an independent lodging property owner in an ever-changing travel and legal landscape.
Members of ALP deal with many challenges in their daily operations. Keeping up with concerns such as ADA compliance, Online Travel Agent (OTA) platforms, and the increase in short-term rentals can consume a great deal of time. We seek to offer tools, including best practices, that have been helpful in mitigating some of the concerns caused by these issues.
