Joseph A. McInerney, CHA, president and CEO of the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AH&LA), has extended his original five-year contract an additional three years, ending October 2009. The announcement was made last week at the association`s spring board of director`s meeting at the Loews L`Enfant Plaza Hotel in Washington, D.C.



As the head executive of the largest trade association representing the U.S. lodging industry, McInerney has reorganized the association to streamline efficiency and strengthen its core operations, including consolidating its two affiliates to form the American Hotel & Lodging Educational Foundation – the only educational dollar-dispensing, not-for-profit premier organization for scholarships, professional certification, and instructional material as well as funding for key industry research. Additionally, McInerney spearheaded the changing of the membership structure from a federation to a dual membership format, streamlined the board of directors, and clarified the organization`s mission.



Joe has been integral in pushing through much-needed change at the association, said AH&LA Chairman and Plantation Resort Management President Pedro Mandoki, CHA. His contract extension ensures the continuity and solid footing of the AH&LA brand.



I am excited about my contract extension and look forward to serving the U.S. hospitality industry with AH&LA for another four years,
said McInerney.



McInerney has more than 40 years of experience in the hospitality industry and is well versed in the various skills needed to operate in association, corporate, and lodging environments. Prior to AH&LA, he was president and CEO of the Pacific Asia Travel Association and has held top level executive positions with Forte Hotels, Inc., Hawthorn Suites, and ITT`s Sheraton franchise division.
