NRA Teams Up On Training With American Hotel & Lodging Educational Institute
The National Restaurant Association and the American Hotel & Lodging Association have combined forces to focus on the future of hospitality. The two groups finalized and executed an agreement last month for the NRA to acquire the training business assets and products of the AHL Educational Institute, which is recognized as the training and certifying body for the hospitality industry. The two associations will merge resources to produce a training program benefiting employees in their career development and improve overall consumer satisfaction.
“At the heart of America’s hotel and hospitality industry are our people. As such, a core part of AHLA’s mission has centered on providing employees with the best career opportunities through training and development,” says AHLA President/CEO Katherine Lugar. “This exciting new partnership will allow us to maintain our focus on delivering top-notch training and development to the hotel workforce under AHLA-branded products while sharpening our focus on advocacy, industry research, and advancing our industry story.”
