Don't take our word for it, hear what our members have to say about the value and benefits of membership with ISHA:
"This year’s ISHA Conference was my first. I was delighted to receive the scholarship as I’m not sure it would have been possible for me to attend without it. I made so many useful connections and really enjoyed all of the speakers. The conference was efficiently executed and provided the perfect opportunity to meet with other state associations and learn more about their business goals and member benefits. The conference provided a lot of useful information that I know will be beneficial and aid in the success of my career success. I am grateful for the scholarship and the opportunity to be a part of such an engaging conference."
-Susannah Flanner, Director of Membership/Strategic Partnerships, Illinois Hotel and Lodging Association
“From the very start, I found ISHA to be an essential tool to the ongoing success of my association. It is imperative for any association executive to procure the most current and robust knowledge and understanding of the industry in which they represent and the environment in which their association operates. The International Association of Hotel Associations brings so much more. Throughout my involvement with ISHA, I have not only been able to gain the necessary knowledge, research and understanding of our industry, but more importantly ISHA has provided an avenue to build and establish strong relationships with like-minded association professionals. It is because of ISHA that I am able to leverage those best practices and those unique connections to maximize my ability to grow my association through membership, strengthen our governmental affairs efforts, and enhance our presence statewide.”
-Chris Hardman, Director of Governmental Affairs & Membership, Georgia Hotel and Lodging Association
Attending the ISHA Winter Conference has been an important resource for me. I have taken away so many best practices and hopefully shared a number of my own. When working for a large industry with such a small staff, it’s so helpful to think of your ISHA Membership counterparts as an extension of your professional team – a group of people to bounce ideas off of, test new programs and even collaborate across borders. I love coming to the conference!
-Halle E. Markwas, Director of Membership, Ohio Hotel & Lodging Association
