State & Federal Advocacy Days
Arizona Tourism Advocacy Day
Arizona State Capitol, Senate Lawn
AzLTA leadership, members and staff convene at Arizona’s State Capitol to brief state legislators on the critical economic impact of our industry. Lodging & tourism is the only industry to positively impact all 15 counties in Arizona and drives over $21 billion in director visitor spending. After briefings with state senators and state representatives, AzLTA hosts a locally catered lunch on the House Lawn and invites all state legislators and their staffs to attend.
This incredible opportunity allows for AzLTA members to share powerful stories and make impactful connections with state lawmakers. Advocacy Day is an annual event that supports AzLTA’s continual efforts of elevating the prominence of Arizona’s lodging and tourism industry and the association’s voice of advocacy for public policy formulation favorable to its stakeholders.
Legislative Action Summit
Each spring while Congress is in session, the American Hotel and Lodging Association (AHLA) and the Asian American Hotel Owners Association (AAHOA) unite the hotel industry to demonstrate to lawmakers the strength of the industry.
Legislative Action Summit is a unique opportunity for AzLTA to join together with hundreds of industry colleagues and stakeholders to meet congressional representatives to share Arizona’s story, the story of the industry and educate Congress on the important issues affecting the hotel and lodging business.
