Founded in 1930, the Kentucky Hotel and Lodging Association is a voluntary non-profit organization made up of hospitality industry professionals. Our members recognize they have a stake in the hospitality business and have joined together to advance and enhance the industry. Together we coordinate ideas, energy and financial resources to accomplish collectively the success none of us could achieve individually.

Legislative Support
Our statewide legislative network helps to protect your interests in both Frankfort and Washington. During the past years, countless numbers of adverse legislative bills have been defeated, saving our industry millions of dollars. In addition, KHLA provides member-only legislative updates so that members can keep up with the bills that directly affect the hotel/hospitality industry.

Industry Information
Our monthly e-newsletter bring owners and managers up-to-date on occupancy trends, personnel changes, state and federal rules and regulations, special reports, trends and other information helpful to the manager.

This e-communications tool provides timely information to hoteliers in the state, advising them of scams, potential threats and other valuable information that is specific to the operation of hotels in Kentucky.

Educational Seminars
KH&LA regularly produces seminars for our members on topics of importance to the hotel industry. These educational sessions provide valuable information as well as quality networking opportunities.An annual meeting, featuring education, networking and the Stars of the Industry and Garner Hanson Awards is produced in the fall of each year.

Message Boards and Job Postings
Our members-only message boards and job postings section fosters communication among members and can be an excellent problem-solving tool.

In addition to networking at KH&LA educational sessions and the annual meeting, the organization provides members-only access to the complete KH&LA database.
