ALLIED PARTNER COMMITTEE
This committee suggests/recruits businesses for membership and represents the interests of Allied Partners within ALP. The committee will develop strategies, partnerships, and ways to increase a strong business-to-business community, for the benefit of all members.
An Allied Partner is an ALP Member that provides goods and services to the lodging industry with the option to provide discounts or revenue share. As a dues-paying member, an Allied Partner has access to the benefits & services offered at that level.
PARTNERSHIP/NON-DUES TASKFORCE (sub-committee of Allied Partner Committee)

An Affinity Partner, in lieu of membership dues, matches or exceeds the dues amount with royalties (a revenue share established by contract) paid to ALP. Affinity Partners are not members and do not have the same access to member benefits as Allied Partners do. They typically provide member benefits such as access to discounted products and services.
