Last week, AAHOA Members hosted Congresswoman Van Duyne (R-TX-24) for a back-of-house tour at the Wyndham DFW / North Irving hotel to get a unique, hands-on tour of the daily life of a hotel operator. “Having Congresswoman Beth Van Duyne participate in the back of the house tour was an amazing experience. Interacting with the staff and guests, participating in daily staff duties, and understanding the hospitality business, demonstrates her commitment not only to AAHOA members, but also her constituents that reside in her district,” said Dhiren Masters, North Texas Regional Director.
AAHOA Back-of-the-House Tours can be instrumental in educating Members of Congress (MOC) on the hotel industry and the inner workings of a hotel property in their district. Tours are also a great way to build meaningful relationships with your members so they may be more familiar with your priorities when they are back in Washington, D.C. By hosting a Back-of-House Tour, MOCs can witness, first-hand, the positive and irreplaceable impact small business owners have on their communities.
