Australian Hotels Association
The Australian Hotels Association is an organisation of employers in the hospitality and liquor industry registered under the Fair Work (Registered Organisations) Act 2009. Established in 1839, the AHA represents the interests of more than 5,000 members across Australia serviced by branches operating in every state and territory plus a Canberra-based National Office. Accommodation hotels have their specific interests represented by a distinct division within the AHA, Tourism Accommodation Australia (TAA).
The National Board of the AHA, the governing council, is formed by delegates from each of the branches, with the number of delegates determined by the number of hotels in each state or territory. The National Board meets once per year.
The President of each state/territory branch together with the President of Tourism Accommodation Australia constitutes the AHA National Executive. The National Executive meets several times each year to formulate strategies and provide direction between the annual meetings of the National Board.
