Executive Leadership Council

The Executive Leadership Council provides a regularly-scheduled forum for the provincial hotel associations to come together to address important industry issues that are, or have the potential to become, national in scope.  Input from the Executive Leadership Council ensures regional considerations are incorporated into the Hotel Association of Canada’s (HAC’s) advocacy efforts and are reflected in the development and delivery of association’s strategic plan. This forum also provides the associations with an opportunity to exchange information on their day-to-day operations in order to promote best practices in governance and operations.

 

Goals of the Executive Leadership Council

  1. Advance the industry provincially and nationally
  2. Grow membership in the provincial hotel associations and HAC
  3. Promote best practices in governance and operations
  4. Enhance industry advocacy and program delivery

 

Objectives

  • To address issues of common concern that impact the hotel industry across Canada
  • To improve the performance of HAC and the provincial hotel associations generally
  • To report on each other’s activities and developments
  • To leverage assets wherever possible and achieve greater cost-effectiveness through economies of scale
  • To promote and advocate on behalf of the hotel industry at the federal and provincial levels
  • To provide advice and make recommendations to the HAC and provincial hotel association boards of directors
